Last year's Book Bazaar proceeds were used to purchase historical research materials. 

"These digitized versions of key 19th century British newspapers provide more access to local and regional news stories, with Part V providing access to a concentration of titles from the northern part of the United Kingdom." States a press release. "With the addition of 94 newspapers, users can now research more than 160 newspapers. The collections support research in disciplines such as history, literature, Victorian studies and political science."
