Mass Observation online trial

Just to let you know that we have a trial running to Mass Observation online. It's available to registered staff and students of the University of Sheffield until 16th November 2009.

The Library has a number of trials to electronic resources provided by publishers and electronic resource suppliers. These are often for a limited time and are an opportunity to explore a resource.

Mass Observation online provides access to digital images of material from the Mass Observation Archive (MOA). You can view material generated by Mass Observation (MO) between 1937 and 1949 plus some later additions from the 1950s and 1960s. It includes a number of file reports (1937-1972) and publications produced by members of the central team of researchers, as well as material submitted by volunteers.

Take a look at the 'nature and scope' section and 'brief history' to find out what material is available and further background information.
