Navy lists case study

'I used the British Library when looking for Navy Lists of commissioned officers and Hansard reports from the early 1800s. For a first time user of their website, it was a helpful and rewarding experience. Within 24 hours, I had the materials I needed.'

Rachel S. Kingcade, Chief Reference Librarian, US Military Academic University

'At the time, my research was for a professor who requested Navy Lists of commissioned officers and Hansard reports from the early 1800s. Not being very familiar with these materials, I made queries to the British Library regarding specific holdings and usage. Contact information via the site was easy to find and use and the search interface was streamlined and intuitive. 

I received a prompt and very helpful reply (within 24hrs) which enabled me to have materials pulled together and ready for this professor during his visit. For a first time user of this site, it was a helpful and rewarding experience. I recommend your site to other patrons for research based on this positive experience.'
