The Annual Register is an invaluable year-by-year record of world events from James Cook's landing on the shores of Australia to the impeachment of Bill Clinton. This classic reference work provides historians and students with information on the major and minor events of the past 250 years, with historical context and perspective and with a mass of biographical information.

The online version of The Annual Register transforms this collection of 250+ printed volumes into a vast database of historical information. It enables users to search in any or all volumes at the same time and to search for words in the text itself as well as in the index. You can immediately find all references to a person, country or event. It is a goldmine of material for the student, the teacher and the researcher.

The database contains the complete scanned images of the printed volumes together with the tables of contents and the index. Pages have been scanned so that you can view the image as well as search the complete text. You can move from the table of contents to a selected year or search the indexes for the entire collection and link to relevant page images. When viewing the scanned pages, you can browse backwards and forward through the pages just as you would with the printed volumes.

The online version enables many libraries to offer the complete collection for the first time.
