To search for UK online newspapers use either the Library Catalogue, the A-Z Titles List or newspaper databases. 

Newspaper databases allow you to search for on-line newspapers in a variety of different ways:

  • Cross search collections of on-line newspaper databases, such as Gale News Vault.
  • Search individidual databases that cross search a number of newspapers at any one time - such as Library PressDisplay.
  • Search individual databases that only search a single newspaper title - such as the Times Digitial Archive.

Collections also range from historical newspapers to databases that provide access to contemporary newspapers only.

The full collection of on-line newspapers databases can be viewed via the Electronic Library

For further information about using newspaper databases, consult a Liaison Librarian who works in this particular area:
