What a great year 2018 was for the British Newspaper Archive. We added 6,226,893 pages to the Archive across 329 titles. It has been our absolute privilege to assist the British Library, Reach Plc (Trinity Mirror) and Independent News and Media PLC, and other partners, to digitise their collections of historic newspapers and bring them online.
Since our last update we have added an additional 228,772 pages across ten titles, including one brand new title. The Lennox Herald for Dumbartonshire in Scotland joins 111 other Scottish newspapers in the collection. You can find a list of the titles we have added to in the table below.
You can learn more about each of the titles we add to every week by clicking on their names. On each paper’s title page, you can read a FREE sample issue, learn more about our current holdings, and our plans for digitisation.
