Join Swem research librarians to see demonstrations of our latest databases. Today's featured databases are Documents on British Policy Overseas, British Online Archives, and Film & Television Literature Index with Full Text.

Documents on British Policy Overseas:
Provides users with access to a wide range of primary source documents from Britain's Foreign and Commonwealth Office, shedding light on throughout the twentieth century. Selected and edited by the official historians of the FCO, Documents on British Policy Overseas includes many documents specifically de-classified for inclusion in the series.

British Online Archives:
Access to digitized copies of archives held in Britain, with a detailed finding aid for each archive held. At the start of 2008, collections held are the Parliamentary Labour Party papers, covering the period from 1968/69 up to 1993/94, and reports of the BBC Listener Research Department 1937- c1950. Future collections will cover government publications, the industrial revolution, and records of Britain's relationship with the Americas, Asia and Africa.

Film & Television Literature Index:
Covers journal and magazine titles for film and television reviews, scholarly and critical analysis of cinema and television, and articles of popular interest about film and television. About half the journals and magazines are film periodicals and the other half cover film and television with some regularity. Subject coverage includes film & television theory, preservation & restoration, writing, production, cinematography, technical aspects, and reviews.
