John Johnson Collection for Local Historians: What is online?

What is online and what is not

Most of the John Johnson Collection is primary source material for social historians and the existing catalogues are rich hunting grounds. Try our online catalogue and the ProQuest project for subjects, names, places and keywords.

This table shows you the cataloging, digitisation and indexing status of each section of the Collection.

Many of the sections directly relevant to historians are grouped under the main theme: Political, Social, Religious and Economic History.

Of these:

  • Crime, Murders and Executions material has been catalogued and digitised and is available through the Johnson online catalogue (without images) and the ProQuest site (with images and also mapping to other resources, through Mapping Crime).
  • All Bodleian Ballads are catalogued and digitised and can be searched through the Ballad catalogue.
  •  Political Cartoons and Trades and Professions prints are catalogued and digitised. They are available through the Johnson online catalogue and through VADS, where they can be cross-searched with other collections.
