New resource : Migration to New Worlds


The University of Edinburgh now has access to the online primary source collection, Migration to New Worlds, due to negotiations with JISC to provide free access to all UK higher and further education institutions.

Migration to New Worlds provides an in-depth look at the emigration of peoples from Great Britain, mainland Europe and Asia to the New World and Australasia in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It includes Colonial Office files on emigration, diaries and travel journals, ship logs and plans, printed literature, objects, watercolours, and oral histories. A migration mapping feature allows you to explore immigration and emigration of the United States, Australia, Canada and New Zealand over time.

Access via Discovered.
