The following databases are newly acquired or being evaluated for a future subscription.
BHA and RILA cover European and American visual arts material including articles from over 1,200 journals. These citation databases, searchable together, cover material published between 1975 and 2007.
BHA includes articles from over 1,200 journals. BHA includes all articles within the subject scope of BHA regardless of the subject focus of a particular journal. Thus, many of the journals on this list are covered partially, as only some of their articles are within BHA's scope.
Access to the International Bibliography of Art (IBA) is provided through ProQuest and can be accessed via our list of databases.
New Trial
The Political Extremism and Radicalism program provides access to primary sources created by groups and movements considered to be unorthodox or outside of mainstream politics of that period. Users may come across content that they find upsetting such as journals, newsletters, publications, propaganda, or cartoons intended to induce hatred or violence towards a particular group due to their race, sexuality, beliefs, or other characteristics.
Equally some of the material in this database may not be considered extreme or radical by modern standards or in an individual’s opinion. Their inclusion reflects that they were considered unorthodox compared to the political norm at the time, reflects the compilation of the original collection from which they came or because they support wider research on a topic.

The Listener was a weekly magazine established by the BBC in 1929 under its director-general, Lord Reith. It was developed as the medium for reproducing broadcast talks, initially on radio, but in later years television as well, and was the intellectual counterpart to the BBC listings magazine Radio Times. The Listener is one of the few records and means of accessing the content of many early broadcasts. In addition to commenting on the intellectual broadcasts of the week, the Listener also previewed major literary and musical shows and regularly reviewed new books.

Over its sixty-two-year history, the Listener attracted the contributions of literary icons such as E. M. Forster, George Orwell, Bertrand Russell, George Bernard Shaw, and Virginia Woolf. It also provided an important platform for new writers and poets, with W. H. Auden, Sylvia Plath, and Philip Larkin being notable examples.
