A fantastic academic resource for schools, libraries, colleges & universities

The British Newspaper Archive is an astonishingly rich archive of primary source documents covering hundreds of years of history. Whatever your academic discipline, we're keen to make access easier for you, and your students and library customers.

A dedicated library-ready platform is now available: BNA Community Edition

If you're interested in providing multi-user access to the British Newspaper Archive, whether via a private or public library, talk to us today.

Our library-ready Community Edition of this site allows you to offer access to multiple users within your premises. Access is granted via your computer network's IP address and any number of simultaneous users can be accommodated, according to your needs. Competitively priced and quick to set up, we can have you up and running quickly. 

Of course, it's not just for historians: our site is already actively used by social scientists, geographers, fashion students, musicians and more!
