Manchester University Press is proud to announce the launch of the new Manchester Medieval Sources Online Platform
Providing easy access to digital history sources, Medieval Sources Online brings essential texts from the Manchester University Press Medieval Sources series to students and academics all over the world. From the terror of the Black Death to the drama of the Norman invasion, Manchester Medieval Sources brings alive the reality of life in the medieval world through these first hand accounts, many translated into English for the first time. The series is also unique in providing extensive introductory and explanatory material which will enable a beginner in the area to understand the variety of interpretations the sources have had, and any linguistic problems that have been controversial.
Series editors: Rosemary Horrox, University of Cambridge and Simon MacLean, University of St Andrews

Manchester Scholarship Online (MSO) now makes available for the first time the best of MUP’s extensive scholarly studies in a cross-searchable library that offers quick and easy access to the full text of over 300 books in History, Literature, Political Science, Film, Television and Radio and Society and Culture.
At its launch in July 2012, Manchester Scholarship Online will join Oxford Scholarship Online on the University Press Scholarship Online (UPSO) platform. Content on UPSO is fully cross-searchable.
Responding to increased demand for online scholarly content, UPSO streamlines the research process by making disparately published monographs easily accessible, highly discoverable and fully cross-searchable via one online platform. Research that previously would have required users to jump between a variety of books, and disconnected websites can now be concentrated through a single search engine.
Manchester Scholarship Online provides an online hub for the best in Manchester University Press monographs while also providing users with the latest set of highly intuitive tools to enable deep search across all the content in the UPSO program. As such, UPSO will be the premier online research tool—for scholars, teachers, graduate and undergraduate students—and an essential resource for all academic libraries.
