More about this project

BOPCRIS (British Official Publications Collaborative Reader Information Service) aims to save researchers wasting valuable research time and effort finding relevant 18th, 19th and 20th Century British Official Publications by providing a Web-based bibliographic database which enables them, from their own desktops, to:
  • Search and browse for relevant documents without having to visit libraries to consult hard-copy reference tools, or needing to seek assistance from reference librarians
  • Read abstracts, and view detailed consistent subject indexing, of key documents so they can assess whether they need to see the full document or not
  • Find out the nearest location of relevant documents if they decide they need them
  • Read the digitised full-text version of a limited number of documents

BOPCRIS has been developed as part of the Research Support Libraries Programme (RSLP) with support from the National Opportunities Fund.
