The ‘digital research guide’ to the field of nineteenth century history my colleagues and I of the Chair of Modern Western European History at Freiburg University published in 2016 has been updated to include some new material and links.

In this text, we present a broad overview over the digital resources presently available to historians of the ‘long’ nineteenth century, ranging from search catalogues and source databases to institutional frameworks and communication platforms. It aims to ‘guide’ the student and scholar through this new field of expertise as well as provide a critical evaluation of the possibilities and pitfalls opened up by the availability of these new gateways to information and source materials.

The updated edition is available here.

In addition to this guide, a link database on digital resources for historians I curate using the platform Pearltrees is available here.
