Mass Observation Archive
The university has now purchased the Mass Observation Archive online. Mass Observation was a social research organisation collecting information on British society from 1947 to 1965. The archive covers topics such as old age, crime, shopping, dance, sport, and ethnic minorities, some of which may be of interest to those of you in human geography.
It can be accessed at http://www.massobservation.amdigital.co.uk/ or via the Library catalogue. Your university login is needed if you are off campus.
