For one month, SOAS students and staff can freely try one of the most desirable collection of historical reference materials.

In cooperation with Cambridge University Press, Cambridge Archive Editions is now available online at East View, and is accessible on-campus and off-campus from 22nd September till 21st October 2014.

For many years Cambridge Archives Editions has specialized in the history of the Middle East, Russia and the Balkans, the Caucasus, Southeast Asia, and China and the Far East.
This 1,000-volume classic in area studies includes 700,000 pages of primary documents originally compiled from the UK National Archives (represented in facsimile, including numerous maps) with insightful narrative provided by scholarly editors.

These digital collections are now made searchable through CAE’s document-level citations and rich indexing, and are presented alphabetically in 130 sets, by world regions (Near & Middle East, Slavic & Balkan, and East & Southeast Asia) or topics.

Try them now on-campus or off-campus and let us know your views on these resources.
