British Newspaper Archive

Posted by: Jan Meisels Allen

The British Library in partnership with Brightsolid has announced they added a newspaper title page to their British Newspaper Archive collection.You can now see 'Recently Added Issues' (titles that have been added to in the last 30 days), plus a total A-Z list of the titles that are available on the site and the year range covered.  Thousands of pages are added daily -with over 5 million pages already posted.

Searching is free. One can search by newspaper or by key words in the archive and browse by location http://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/ .
However if you wish to view the article, download or print there is a charge..various packages from 2 days  £6.95 GBP to 12 months £79.95 GBP are available for purchase with other options also available. You will need to register before you start a search--that is free.  Registration also gives you 15 free credits toward your first "purchase".  There are some "free" pages:

I have no affiliation with either British Library or Brightsolid.
