We currently have trial access, until 3 April, to the Subculture Archives. This database consists of digital images from the archives of the Museum of Youth Culture. Get online access to thousands of primary source documents on youth culture and its associated music, fashion, film, art, and photography. Content includes photographs, objects, audio and oral history, ephemera, and articles and journals. Journey through the youth culture of the past, from the New Romantics to Punks, from Mods to Drum N Bass, from Teddy Boys to Acid House.
Access is available here – Subculture Archives. Please click the “Log in via your University or Institution”, and select the University of Reading from the list. You may be asked to log in with your usual University username and password.
Your feedback about the resource is most welcome: Would you benefit from permanent access? How may it assist with your research? Is the database easy to navigate and search? Please send any feedback you may have, positive or negative, to the Academic Liaison Librarian for History, Charlie Carpenter: email@example.com.
