Punch Historical Archive

From 1841 to 1992 Punch was the world’s most celebrated magazine of humour and satire. From its early years as a campaigner for social justice to its transformation into national icon, Punch played a central role in the formation of British identity – and how the rest of the world saw the British.

The fully text searchable online archive of Punch ─ Punch Historical Archive 18411992 ─ is available for scholars, students and the general researcher to explore. The archive is an unrivalled resource for researching and teaching 19th and 20th century political and social history on key themes such as World War I and World War II; Wars and Conflicts; Colonialism, Imperialism and End of Empire; Impact of New Technology and Modernity; Public Health, Conservation and Environmentalism; Social Change; and The Role of Women.

I’m having problems when I try to download the full text of a journal article; what should I do?

It’s a good idea to clear your computer’s cookies, cache and saved preferences, as these have sometimes been the cause of error messages. 

To do this in:

Firefox:

Go to Tools and select ‘clear recent history’.  Tick everything and choose the timeframe to clear (e.g. a day), then click ‘clear now’.

Internet Explorer:

Go to Tools, and select ‘Internet Options’.  Under Browsing History select ‘delete’.  Tick everything, then click ‘delete’.

Chrome:

Click on the spanner icon and select ‘Settings’.  Click ‘show advanced settings’ and under Privacy choose ‘clear browsing data’. Tick everything and choose the timeframe to clear (e.g. a day), then click ‘clear browsing data’.


Close the browser and then re-enter the online resources. 

A small number of students are having problems linking to the full text of an article when using Internet Explorer 9; you might want to try using Firefox or Chrome.

If you are still having problems, call the Library on 0151 291 2079 (ground floor Subject Support Point) or 0151 291 2007 (first floor Subject Support Point).

 

How do I read ‘MyiLibrary’ and ‘E-Books on EBSCO’ e-books on a mobile device e.g. tablet / smartphone? 

‘E-Books on EBSCO’ and ‘MyiLibrary’ e-books are accessed via the Internet, so can be accessed from Online Library on any internet-enabled device.

Some books are in pdf format, so you will need to download a pdf file reader in order to view them (e.g. Adobe Reader).

E-Books from our collections cannot be read on an Amazon Kindle.

Upcoming Artstor Digital Library Feature Changes


Artstor are changing some features which may require you to save some of your work in the Arstor Digital Library.  These changes are part of the release of an improved platform that will feature a redesigned interface and streamlined features which will include:

 

  • The pausing of the upload and metadata entry functions for Personal Collections between June 1st and early September this year. During this time you will be able to share, download, and save your existing images to groups as usual. However, you will not be able to add new images to your Personal Collection or edit any of the text associated with your existing images.
  • Uploading of OIV presentations into Personal Collections will be retired. If you need to share OIV presentations with students, please convert them to PDFs. An enhanced option for exporting your OIV presentations to other formats is being explored and will be available soon.
  • Personal notes and instructor notes are being retired. If you need any information saved in your personal or instructor notes, we recommend copying and pasting this information into your image group descriptions by June 1st.
  • The citation generator and saved citations will be temporarily removed and added back into the Digital Library after the new release. If you have saved citations that you need, please download them before June 1st.
  • Saved searches are being retired.
  • The date filter for search results will be temporarily removed in late May (prior to the release of the new site). It will return, with improvements, as part of the updated site this summer.
