TRIAL: Slavery, Abolition and Social Justice, 1490-2007

We have a trial of Slavery, Abolition and Social Justice, 1490-2007 until 1st July 2008.

To access this trial go to http://www.slavery.amdigital.co.uk/. Off-campus users should access this through the Windows Terminal Service. In the event of purchase we would set up off-campus access through EZproxy as usual.

During the trial, the ‘download entire document in PDF’ option is not available but you are still able to view and print images from the collections.

Note that this online collection is not yet complete. See http://www.slavery.amdigital.co.uk/Introduction/Index.aspx for more details of its current and future contents.

After trying Slavery, Abolition and Social Justice, 1490-2007 please leave a comment.

This is quite a nice database, easy to navigate around and with good quality images. It's not that extensive (but more material is promised) and is very subject-specific (as per the title). That means it's likely to be of prime interest to those researching slavery rather than a wider readership. For Liverpool aficionados there is some material from the Merseyside Maritime Museum (papers from a few of the old merchant families) but, being subject-specific, the database does not include the full range of material.

As a whole, the database falls into the category of nice-to-have rather than potentially important for broad classes of historians.
