British Library 19th Century texts added to Copac

We’re pleased to announce that records have been added to Copac for 65,000 British Library 19th Century texts (1789-1914).

The records are from Historical Texts, a Jisc sister service, who became Copac contributors earlier this year (more information at

The service is available via subscription to UK HE and FE institutions and Research Councils who are full members of Jisc Collections. Historical Texts is also available to everyone at the British Library Reading Rooms in London.*

To browse, or limit your search to Historical Texts, go to the main tab on and choose ‘Historical Texts’ from the list of libraries. When the ‘Internet Resources’ link in a Copac record is selected, you will be prompted to login with your institutional login.

Further additions to Copac from Historical Texts are planned for the future.
