This page highlights the fantastic collection of digitised archives that we hold at Kent and includes newspapers, periodicals, rare books, images, letters, pamphlets, diaries, accounts, maps, drawings, and much more! You can find guidance on visiting our Special Collections and Archives, as well as the Canterbury Cathedral Library, on their own pages. Both are treasure troves for English students, and you are very welcome to visit them.

We have so many primary sources that it’s difficult to list all that could be relevant to you here. For an overview of all our digital archives, I recommend using the Digital Resources Directory or visiting one of the other Library Resource Guides that might be relevant to your topic.


For more historical news sources and official publications please visit the News Sources and Official Publications pages on the History Library Resource Guide.
