New resource: Migration to New Worlds

Library Services have recently been given access to Migration to New Worlds: The Century of Immigration (Module I) as part of a collaboration between JISC and Adam Matthew.

The collection includes unique primary source material on the ‘Century of Immigration’ (1800-1924): a period when hundreds of thousands of migrants left their homelands in Great Britain, Ireland, mainland Europe, India, China, Japan and other Asian countries to start new lives in the United States, Canada and Australasia.

Materials include unique diaries, personal letters, oral histories and journals; each narrating the intimate journeys and challenges immigrants faced when settling in foreign countries.

  1. Very topical in these xenophobic times. A great way to show how all peoples, what ever their ethnicity and religious beliefs have striven to find new horizons.
