British Library Newspapers, Part I: 1800-1900
Overall, this is a wonderfully rich resource which has all the benefits of a well-funded, exhaustively researched project designed with the views of potential users well to the fore. The process of academic consultation has produced a selection of material which is certainly of enormous value for those wishing to better understand the language, layout and political contexts of the 19th-century newspaper across the British Isles.
"19th Century BL Newspapers Online gives us an invaluable new perspective on the way Victorian Britain came to understand itself as a community of citizens, consumers and commentators. It is hard to imagine any researcher with nineteenth-century interests to whom it does not offer important insights on their subject: and it is dangerously addictive!"
Developed in partnership with the British Library and JISC, British Library Newspapers, Part I-II offers full runs of national, regional and local nineteenth century British newspapers, taken directly from the extensive holdings of the British Library. Part I: 1800-1900 includes 47 titles, totalling approximately 2.2 million pages, selected to reflect the social and political developments of the times in which they were published.
The papers have been carefully selected by an editorial board from the British Library whose purpose was to provide a broad yet detailed view of British life in the nineteenth century; from business to sport, from politics to entertainment and the arts. The collection is made up of daily and weekly publications and reflects Britain’s growing role as a superpower in the nineteenth century world.
