New e-resources: American West, Virginia Company Archives, Popular Culture 1950-1975

We're delighted to announce that we now have permanent access to three major new e-resource collections for US history, as follows:

The American West: Sources from the Everett D. Graff Collection at the Newberry Library, Chicago
This database contains a wide variety of digitised manuscripts, maps, ephemera, and rare printed sources covering all aspects of Western American history up to the 1930s.

Virginia Company Archives: The Ferrar Papers, 1590-1790
This resource documents the founding and economic development of Virginia as seen through the papers of the Virginia Company of London (1606-1624) and the papers of the Ferrar family (1590-1790). Also includes a digitised version of the four volumes of The Records of the Virginia Company of London.

Rock and Roll, Counterculture, Peace & Protest: Popular Culture in Britain and America, 1950-1975
This resource contains a wealth of printed and manuscript sources, visual material, ephemera and video clips, documenting the era on both sides of the Atlantic.

All three resources are now available via SOLO/OxLIP+ and are listed in our online guide. Look out for more in-depth posts on all three in due course on our resources blog.
