The British Newspaper Archive is a partnership with the British Library to digitise up to 40 million newspaper pages from the British Library's vast collection over a 10 year period.

The British Library's collection of historical newspapers is one of the wonders of the world: it contains newspapers from 1603 to the present day, from both Britain and further afield. There are over 600,000 bound volumes of newspapers (occupying 32 kilometres, or 20 miles, of shelving) and over 300,000 reels of microfilm (occupying a further 13 kilometres, or 8 miles, of shelving). Until now, the only way to view these newspapers was to visit the British Library, and, of course, it was not possible to search them.

There are thousands of newspaper pages being added every week, The British Newspaper Archive currently holds:

  • Newspapers dating from 1710 - 1954
  • 10 million pages available online 
  • Over 300 titles
