British and Irish Womens Letters and Diaries spans more than 400 years of personal writings, bringing together the voices of women from England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales. Complementing Alexander Streets North American Women's Letters and Diaries, the database lets researchers view history in the context of womens thoughts their struggles, achievements, passions, pursuits, and desires. Extending back to the 1500s, the collection will show researchers the various shapes and formats of the diary as it evolved, including the travel diary, offering detailed accounts of journeys and descriptions of places; the daily personal diary, in which women reflected more broadly on aspects of their lives; letter diaries, wherein a daily dated letter to a recipient served simultaneously as a diary entry; and other forms.
