Adam Matthew Digital has just released the second update to Mass Observation Online, an online resource recording everyday life in Britain, derived from the Mass Observation Archive housed at the University of Sussex. This latest update adds 200,000 pages to the online collection, making a total of over 500,000 pages of unique online material available for the study of Britain from 1937-1955. Among the new online contents are diaries from 1943-1945; directives on the atomic bomb, children, demobilisation, housing, money, and religiion; extensive new collections; a new search box, and many links to even more material.
If you haven’t taken a look at this resource yet, you will want to. In anticipation of that, I asked AMD for a brief trial here on the blog and they’ve graciously provided it.
