Libraries Can Now Subscribe to Extended Archive of New Welsh Review Back to 2000
New Welsh Review, Wales’s foremost literary magazine in English, has extended its digital archive on the Exact Editions platform back to 2000. Subscribing libraries at universities, colleges and schools can now read and search over 85 back issues at the click of a button in addition to new issues, browsing the writing of some of the best writers and thinkers from Wales and beyond.
For over twenty five years, New Welsh Review has been central to the Welsh literary scene in offering a vital outlet for the very best new fiction, creative non-fiction and poetry, a forum for critical debate and a rigorous and engaged reviewing culture. The archive features work from the likes of Paul Muldoon, Gwyneth Lewis, Niall Griffiths and Gillian Clarke, amongst many other high-calibre names.
Readers can benefit from the extended archive’s advanced search function, as well as its intuitive stacking system for easy navigation and facility to download issues for offline reading on iOS and Android devices. Institutional subscriptions are set up using IP-authenticated access, to facilitate unlimited access on and off campus, and librarians also receive usage reports and metadata to improve discoverability.
Editor Gwen Davies commented: “We’re delighted to have added 11 more years’ worth of content to the digital archive. Our treasure trove of literary content will be a great addition to universities’ library collections, and we hope to expand the reach of the title into more institutions worldwide.”
Managing Director of Exact Editions, Daryl Rayner, said: “We’re pleased to have been involved with digitally preserving the archive of a title that has been so important to Welsh literature.”
