The World History section is interesting, also the Reformation stuff.

Alexander Street produces high-quality material, and makes good choices in their document selection. As we move increasingly to encouraging on-line research in personal narratives and the documentary record, and seeing this as a distinctive strength of the research-led teaching at Liverpool History (in part because the access to electronic databases through the Library is so good), the social and cultural history collections would be very useful.
