Queen Elizabeth II just wrapped up her Diamond Jubilee, the celebration commemorating the 60th anniversary of the Queen's ascension to the throne in 1952. Although much of the spotlight has been on Queen Elizabeth II, there is a former queen that also made a splash in the headlines recently.
With the help of ProQuest, Queen Victoria's personal journals were just published online for the first time ever. Now these resources will be available to scholars worldwide thanks to the work of ProQuest and CIG. The personal journals of the Queen will be free to all users in the UK, and users worldwide can view the journals for free until June 30, 2012. After that point in time the journals will be available to all libraries through ProQuest.
