Introducing The Times Digital Archive, the first of several online digitized newspapers from Gale's highly anticipated Historical Newspapers Archive initiative. By taking our microfilm collection of The Times (London) and turning it into a high-resolution digital format with searchable images, The Times Digital Archive presents online access to one of the most highly regarded resources for the study of 19th- and 20th-century history.
With The Times Digital Archive, researchers now have an unparalleled opportunity to search and view the best-known and most cited newspaper in the world online in its original published context. Every complete page of every issue of The Times (London) from 1785 to 1985. Every headline, article and image. Every front page, editorial, birth and death notice, advertisement and classified ad that appeared within the pages of The Times (London) will be easily accessible from what promises to be a complete virtual chronicle of history for this period.
"The (London) Times Digital Archives, 1785-1985, is hot off the online presses. The back files of The Times, a huge microfilm collection from Gale's Primary Source Microfilm, have been digitized and made searchable via the familiar InfoTrac interface...A fascinating and valuable primary source tool for history, social science research, arts, and humanities courses. I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing (and using) the complete archives in 2003. Recommended for school, public, academic, and special libraries both for its content and the intuitive InfoTrac interface."
