The Aberdeen Press and Journal dates back to 1747 when it was called, simply, the Aberdeen Journal. Our holdings currently range from 1748 to 1965, with some gap years. Over the lifespan of this newspaper, the paper has undergone several name changes, which can be seen on the landing page for this title. We plan to digitise the entire run from 1747 to 2001.
We continue to build our holdings of sports-related newspapers with the recent additions to the Manchester-based Athletic News for the years 1878 and 1900 and to The Sportsman for 1918 and 1919.
