New / Trial Databases
The following databases are newly acquired or being evaluated for a future subscription.
This database provides access to art and architectural history scholarship by making key backlists and out-of-print titles on a wide variety of subjects more broadly available and more widely discoverable. The platform also permits professors to create course packs for students. The collection includes content from other university and museum publishers (Yale University Press, Art Institute of Chicago, The MIT Press, Harvard Art Museums, and Yale University Art Gallery).

Part of the Bloomsbury Medieval Studies collection, Medieval Clothing and Textiles provides access to the entire back catalogue of Boydell and Brewer's market leading interdisciplinary Medieval Clothing and Textiles annuals. Interdisciplinary in approach, it features work from the fields of social and economic history, history of techniques and technology, art history, archaeology, literary and non-literary texts, and language, while experimental reconstruction of medieval techniques or artifacts will also form a particular focus. The annuals are available for reading in full text, including all tables and images.
