British Newspaper Archive

The British Library’s newspaper collection is now available on their website. The online archive - a collaboration between technology firm Brightsolid and The British Library, launched the first 4 million pages of the Library’s digitised newspaper collection in 2011.

The new website allows you to search for papers on specific days or using keywords. Very useful for researching ancestors.

A further 36 million pages will be scanned daily over the next ten years.
