It would be good to see the new titles added on a particular date rather than just ones in last 30 days.

John BrittainJune 19th, 2014 at 12:02 pm

can you answer a simple question please? Do you have the East London Advertiser in your portfolio, – particularly 1921? Can I browse the pages of a particular edition?

Wendy BennettJune 19th, 2014 at 12:51 pm

Can you let us know when you are going to add The Liverpool Echo as that is a huge paper and there is an obvious lack of newspapers for the Liverpool and Wirral area.

I can’t seem to find the Manchester Guardian in the list of digitised newspapers. Am I looking in the wrong place?

The British Newspaper ArchiveJune 19th, 2014 at 2:45 pm

Hi Eric, we’ve not digitised the Manchester Guardian yet. You can search the four newspapers we have put online from Manchester here though: http://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/search/results?sortorder=dayearly&place=manchester%2c%20greater%20manchester%2c%20england

You can also suggest the Manchester Guardian as a title you’d like to see online via our feedback forum: http://help-and-advice.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk/forums/243704-newspapers-we-should-add-next

English language papers covering South Wales seem to have been forgotten. When will the Cambrian, Monmouthshire Merlin, Cardiff and Merthyr Guardian etc. be available?

Please allow us to search for items in the Headline as opposed to text. The previous BL search engine allowed for that and it is a much needed tool to target your hits to maximize the research value.
