REED is delighted to announce the launch of REED Online, its new open-access website for digital publication. The site launched on March 2017 with the publication of Staffordshire, edited by J. Alan B. Somerset. All forthcoming collections will be published as digital editions, with plans to integrate data from legacy print collections in future.
Easily searched with a number of useful filters, online records appear conveniently on the same page as their translations, document descriptions, and any glosses or related endnotes. GIS mapping based on the Patrons and Performances map of historic county boundaries and main roads illuminates significant details further. For students and those new to records research, helpful search tips, an introduction to the research process, and an anatomy of a sample record provide a welcoming guide.
