John Wiley and Sons, Inc., a global leader in research and education, and Jisc, the not-for-profit technology provider, today announced the expansion of their partnership with leading UK universities and the British Science Association (BSA) to create a new digital collection: the British Association for the Advancement of Science - Collections on the History of Science (1830s-1970s).

This partnership empowers Jisc-affiliated university libraries to take part in the program and provides free access to the online collection for their professors, researchers and students. Participating universities, whose content was selected on the recommendation of prominent academics in History of Science, include:

• Universities of Leicester, Glasgow, Leeds, London and Liverpool;
• University College London;
• King’s College London;
• British Science Association;
• Mathematical Association.

The newly formed collection will be hosted on the Wiley Digital Archives platform, which uses leading technology to transform centuries-old, primary source content into clear, crisp, and searchable documents. Wiley Digital Archives enables researchers and students to find, group, translate, download, manipulate and share historical materials globally. Tools that support virtual teaching, foster learning and power research are needed now more than ever. Wiley Digital Archives is one such tool enabling researchers and students to peer into the science of the past to create scholarship for the future.

Featuring in this new online collection are 150 years of materials relating to the work of the British Association for the Advancement of Science; extensive correspondence from Sir Charles Wheatstone, co-inventor of the electric telegraph; the lecture notes of Nobel prize winner Sir William Ramsay, whose work led to a new section of the periodic table and the papers of Lord Kelvin covering his huge contributions to the study of electricity, magnetism and thermodynamics. Upon its completion, the digital collection will comprise of one million pages.

Paola Marchionni, Jisc’s head of digital resources for teaching, learning and research, says: “We are delighted to have found a new way to give institutions the opportunity to open up their unique collections for the benefit of the academic community and in a financially sustainable way. This innovative partnership is the first in the world to enable university libraries and archives to influence the content selection of a commercial product that is free to access to all UK members.”

Jay Flynn, Chief Product Officer, Research at Wiley adds,“The importance of giving academics access to research wherever they are in the world has become even more critical. Our partnership with Jisc continues to reflect the importance of collaboration to bring new solutions to our communities. We are thrilled to be pioneering a new business model for digitization of special and archival collections.”
