Why do I have free access?

This library has subscribed to The British Newspaper Archive - Community Edition.

While you are within this library/authority premises, you will have unlimited access to the millions of scanned pages of newspapers that the British Newspaper Archive site holds.

To view pages from the archive, you'll need to register (for free) and be signed in to the service.

All the articles you view will be kept in your Saved area – it’s your personal area in which to store and organise your favourite articles. Here you can create folders for different articles and categorise them however you like – the beauty of "Saved" is that you can make it whatever you want. You can also add notes to any of your articles to record your thoughts and track your progress.

Please see our Getting Started page for useful advice on searching.

We hope you enjoy searching The Archive.
