Expanding our scanned newspaper archives

Our Gale newspaper resources are more popular than ever before, and so we have taken advantage of a Spring deal to expand the time period covered by some of our most popular newspaper archives. Now you can access The Daily Mail from 1896 all the way up to 2016 and The Times from 1785 to 2019 (just three years ago!). You can search both these full text, scanned newspaper archives along with other local newspapers and primary historical resource archives through Gale Primary Sources.

Gale doesn’t just let you search the full text of newspaper archives and then view the scanned pages to understand the typography, images, and layout, Gale Digital Scholar Lab now allows you to mine and analyse text and represent it using visualisation tools.

Don’t forget that we also have access to fully searchable scans of The Guardian from 1791-2003 through ProQuest!
