Online access to the Churchill Archive now available

The Yale University Library now has access to the newly released Churchill Archive, a digital archive of Sir Winston Churchill’s papers. The Guardian had a nice write up of this collection, reporting, “Nearly a million documents that make up Winston Churchill's archive, ranging from school reports, drafts of his famous wartime speeches, to cigar bills, have been made instantly accessible to students, historians, and even politicians looking for lessons from past coalition governments. The entire archive, based at Churchill College, Cambridge, has been digitized enabling researchers, such as the director of its archive centre, Allen Packwood, ‘to find a needle in the Churchill haystack’.”

The Yale University Library is the first academic library to acquire access to this important digital archive, which can be found through the “find databases” section of the library homepage, or this direct URL:
