British Library Newspapers

Connect to Resource

Digital collection of national and regional newspapers sourced from the British Library and published in the United Kingdom and Ireland between the mid-eighteenth and mid-twentieth centuries. These newspapers illuminate diverse and distinct regional attitudes, cultures, and vernaculars, providing an alternative viewpoint to the London-centric national press. They provide a broad yet detailed view of British life: from business to sport, politics to entertainment and the arts.

This collection can also be searched on Gale Primary Sources, an integrated platform that combines Gale’s digital archives into a single cross-searchable interface.
