Showcasing Historical Development Publications

  • BLDS holds a huge breadth of materials which pre-date entry onto our online catalogue.
  • To raise the visibility and accessibility of these publications, we undertook a programme to put these onto our catalogue. 
  • Well over 21,000 of these older items have been added, with a focus on material produced by developing country governments.
  • Items from our collections from Africa, Asia, Latin America and the UK Department for International Development (DFID) are now included.
  • This includes the vast range we hold from the Indian government.
  • If we can secure funding, we will move on to items from international organisations.
