About this Library
The Labour History section of the WWW Virtual Library, part of the WWW VL History Network, is maintained by the International Institute of Social History, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, since October 1996. Roughly, our guidelines are:
  • We seek to assist labour historians, broadly defined. There are excellent sites for general historical resources (we list some).
  • We seek to assist historians, political and social scientists, and others with a historical interest. We do not try systematically to cover sites mainly concerned with today's issues.
  • We concentrate on instruments for historians. So we do not include commercial or political statements, though we mention sites listing trade unions, political parties and the like.
  • We prefer content over mere listing. So we provide links to labour history institutions and collections, but do not try to enumerate all social history departments of each and every university on earth. Again, we mention sites that do.
  • We want to bring together scattered information, not to replicate what other people have done, and often done well.
  • We include only items and institutions that can somehow be reached electronically. An e-mail address will do, but it is a minimum.
  • So we are selective, within limits. Where little exists, we will indicate whatever is moderately interesting; where there is much on offer, however, we apply higher standards.
  • Finally, we aim at clarity and speed: we provide notes where useful, but keep graphics to a minimum.
