ProQuest project


The John Johnson Collection: an archive of printed ephemera is a JISC-funded project, partnered by ProQuest.

Although the same records can be searched on our online catalogue, images for most of the material in the following categories are only available through the ProQuest site:

  • Advertising
  • 19th century Entertainment
  • Popular Prints (not Political Cartoons)
  • Booktrade (not Booktrade Trade Cards, which are currently being catalogued and made available through our online catalogue)
  • Crime, Murders and Executions (further enhanced with links to other online resources through Mapping Crime)

The ProQuest project has migrated to ProQuest’s main platform, where it can be cross-searched with other collections.

The ProQuest site is available free of charge to all in the UK. Outside the UK, it is available through institutional subscription only. Institutions can request a free trial.
