The British Library and online publisher brightsolid today launch a website that will transform the way that people use historical newspapers to find out about the past. The British Newspaper Archive website will offer access to up to 4 million fully searchable pages, featuring more than 200 newspaper titles from every part of the UK and Ireland. The newspapers – which mainly date from the 19th century, but which include runs dating back to the first half of the 18th century – cover every aspect of local, regional and national news.
The Project highlights the ways that libraries and artists can work together and features:
- Visual artists, performing artists, and writers who use libraries in their communities for inspiration, information, and as gallery space
- Collections, libraries and library staff that incubate the arts, and the ways that artists can use them effectively
- Free-to-share resources for librarians looking to incubate the arts at their libraries
- Ideas for artists looking to connect with their communities through library programming
