Manuscripts catalogue

Provides an online searchable catalog to the British Library's Dept. of Manuscripts and covers accessions from 1753 to the present. Allows an index search on names or selected subjects or a descriptions search using keywords or manuscript references. Due to the development of the British Library's new Integrated Archives and Manuscripts System as the catalog for all Archive and Manuscripts material, all new cataloging since July 2009 can be found via Search the Catalog: Archive and Manuscripts. They are currently in the process of migrating the data from this catalog to the new system; when this migration is completed, it will be shut down. Until then users are advised to use both catalogs to search the British Library's Archive and Manuscripts collections
