SWOP Directory highlight: University of Dundee Library and Learning Centre

Subject Support Librarian, Scott McGregor updated his Directory entry the other day. He gave me a bit of information about one of their new subscription databases, American and Great Britain: Diplomatic Relations 1775-1815. Scott said:

This resource provides some 7000 pages of primary material, charting the emergence of an independent America. The set is made up of the diplomatic, official correspondence between America and Britain and gives an extraordinary insight into the shaping of a nation, from America being referred to as “our Colonies and Plantations in North America” by King George the Third to its recognition as the “United States” by Britain in 1782)

duhndeeThat sounds fascinating Scott. Thanks for the update.
