Guardian/Observer, Irish Times, Scotsman archives

We are in the processing of purchasing the archives of The Guardian and The Oberserver, and The Irish Times and The Weekly Irish Times. All of these newspaper archives can be accessed from:

http://proquest.umi.com.ezproxy.liv.ac.uk/login

and scrolling down to the Historical Databases area.


The Guardian covers 1821-2003, The Observer 1791-2003, The Irish Times 1859-2006 and the Weekly Irish Times 1876-1958. The collections includes digital reproductions providing access to every page from every available issue.

We are also trialling the Scotsman archive at the same site and are consideration purchasing that. Note that the Scotsman archive starts with the first issue in 1817 but only covers up to 1950.


After using the Scotsman please leave your comments below. You can choose the anonymous option to comment without needing to have a Blogger account, but it helps if you include your name in your feedback so that we can follow up on comments.

You are of course also welcome to comment on our purchases of The Guardian and The Oberserver, and The Irish Times and The Weekly Irish Times!
