Using Queen Victoria's journals for information literacy

I thought I should have at leaast one royalty-related post to mark the fact that this weekend marks the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. Therefore I present:

Mattison, L. & Tait-Ripperdan, R. (2022). Digital Archives and the Literature Classroom: Advancing Information Literacy through Queen Victoria's Journals. Pedagogy, 22 (2): 295–307. or
"This article describes the implementation of and assessment findings for a digital archival assignment in the 3000‐level Victorian Literature and Culture course at Florida Gulf Coast University. The assignment utilized ProQuest's database, Queen Victoria's Journals, which comprises the extant journals of Queen Victoria, and demonstrated the value of primary historical research and digital archives in enhancing student content knowledge, information literacy, and critical thinking."
