Improved Access to Newspaper Articles

We've just updated information on our newspaper subscriptions on both the Library Catalogue and Library Website, making it even easier to search for articles on particular subjects within the Guardian, Herald, Independent, Observer, Scotsman, Sunday Times and Times.
  • We've added links to the catalogue records of all newspapers, allowing you to access content online. Where archives are available, or where current current only is available, we've provided notes informing you of this.
  • We've also added information to the Times, alerting readers of the availability of Palmer's Index to the Times, available on CD-ROM in the Library and perfect if you want to search for articles on a particular subject.
  • For the Guardian and Observer, we've added links to the Guardian Digital Archive in the Library Catalogue. This indexes articles in the Guardian from 1821-1975 and in the Observer from 1900-1975. Searching is free, though full-text download is only available via personal subscriptions.
  • Finally we've added a link to 19th Century British Library Newspapers from the Herald in the Library Catalogue. This database is available to all GSA students and staff through an Athens account, and provides full-text articles from the Herald from 4 Feb 1820 - 31 Dec 1900.
