The Illustrated London News Historical Archive,1842-2003, purchased

We are delighted to announce that after a successful trial, the library has purchased The Illustrated London News Historical Archive,1842-2003.

Access is available now (with off-campus access via EZproxy as usual) and a catalogue record has been created.

With its debut in 1842 the Illustrated London News became the world's first illustrated weekly newspaper, sparking a revolution in journalism and news reporting. The publication presented a vivid picture of British and world events - including news of war, disasters, royalty, social affairs, the arts and science. Containing over 260,000 full colour pages, fully searchable and browseable, the ILN Historical Archive 1842-2003 provides unprecedented access to the entire run of this unique historical record.
