This is a fantastic resource: it will heavily used by students at all levels as well as staff. For those of us promoting research-based teaching as well as conducting our own research in C19-C20 history, it will be a real boon.

A really useful and easy to use resource - research and teaching in Sociology/Social Policy/Criminology often draws on media narratives, so this would be a valuable resource in addition to the other similar databases already available through the library.

An excellent resource that is crucial to my own research as well as an important tool for other students and staff at the UOL.
