Welcome

Jisc Historic Books and Jisc Journal Archives are full text book and journal archives enabling you to search and download over 350,000 texts and over 3.75 million journal articles respectively. These platforms have been developed by Mimas, on behalf of Jisc Collections, to consolidate and host content licensed in perpetuity by Jisc Collections for the UK Academic community.

Built on meaning based search technology from HP Autonomy, they enable you to discover previously hidden connections between materials that traditional keyword searching would not find, empowering your research. Find out more about how the conceptual searching works in Jisc Historic Books.
