New on iMuseum Explore Newspapers & Publications

– Posted on Tuesday 29th October 2013

Manx National Heritage is pleased to confirm that three further publications have been added to iMuseum Explore Newspapers & Publications available on

In addition to the Isle of Man’s newspapers from 1792 to 1960 subscribers can now search Calf of Man Bird Observatory Reports from 1960 to 2006, The Journal of the Manx Museum from 1924 to 1980 and Manx Museum & National Trust Reports from 1905 to 2009.

Written by the Calf of Man Wardens, the annual Bird Observatory Reports provide an end of year summary of bird activity on the Calf, including migration, breeding birds, bird ringing and a systematic list of the number of visiting birds.  The report is an impressive record of over four decades of bird recording and conservation management on this important Manx Museum and National Trust nature reserve. Users searching phrases such as “puffin” or “Manx shearwater” will be able to build up a picture of the occurrences of these birds on the Calf over decades of careful recording. There are also articles on other wildlife on the island and the diversity of marine life around it.

The Journal of the Manx Museum is an absolute treasure house of scholarly articles on the collections, history and culture of the Isle of Man.  The journal provides a wide variety of information from articles on the Liberty designs of Archibald Knox to Manx Lighthouses to Manx Water-Mills and is packed full of illustrations and photographs.

The Manx Museum & National Trust Reports detail the history of the Manx Museum and heritage protection on the Isle of Man from 1905 to the present day.  Viking treasure hoards, exhibitions, the discovery of archaeological sites and the acquiring of new collections for the nation – their stories are all contained in the Reports.

Each new publication is now available to view through iMuseum Explore Newspapers & Publications, with access available free of charge in the iMuseum Building and at the Manx Museum Reading Room.  Access is also available via an online subscription from less than 28p per day for an annual subscription.
