Documents on British Policy Overseas is a searchable online collection providing a wide range of primary source documents from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, shedding light on British diplomacy throughout the twentieth century. Selected and edited by the official historians of the FCO, it includes many documents specifically de-classified for inclusion in the series.
The documents are keyword searchable, and may be browsed by date or topical collections. The documents are available in full text, with editorial annotations, and include standardised metadata with names of authors, recipients and locations.
This database is available on a trial basis until 8 May 2009, and accessible only on campus.
