British Library Newspapers, Part II: 1800-1900

"We have found the 19th Century British Library Newspapers an excellent resource that is heavily used by both public and staff. It is excellent news that we now have access to a significant number of additional titles and I’m sure that our users will be very pleased."
Kath Cassidy, Newcastle Libraries and Information Service

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 II: 1800-1900 includes 22 additional titles, totalling nearly 1 million pages, increasing the range of English regional newspapers and expands the political views in the British Library Newspapers series.

Adding papers that encompass a wider variety of political views now enables researchers to see an event from a number of contrasting perspectives. These 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.
