Intermittent issues with newspaper archives - Friday 23 December

Home News Intermittent issues with newspaper archives - Friday 23 December

This issue was resolved on 23 May 2017.

We had intermittent issues accessing newspaper archives including 19th century British Library newspapers, British newspapers 1600-1900, The Sunday Times 1822-2006 and The Times digital archive 1785-2010. We investigated this issue with the supplier and apologised for any inconvenience caused.

The supplier of these databases suggested two temporary workarounds:

  1. Using Firefox as a browser and accessing the archives via the Databases page.
  2. Using Artemis Primary Sources - this covers 13 databases including all the newspaper archives mentioned. You can search across all 13 at once or select individual databases (e.g. British Library newspapers) to search.
