University of Sheffield Gains Access to State Papers Online

Henry VIII's trumpeters The Library and the Sheffield Centre for Early Modern Studies are proud to announce that SCEMS members and students now have access to State Papers Online, the online database holding the digitised early modern state papers collections for the United Kingdom.  Sheffield users can now access Part I (State Papers, Domestic, 1509-1603) and Part III (State Papers, Domestic, 1603-1713).  In addition, the SPO website hosts a wide range of research and teaching resources, ranging from language tutorials to palaeographical resources. This represents a significant resource acquisition for the Library, and a real boost to early modern studies at the University of Sheffield.
