News Archives

Discover digital, print and microfilm news resources

The majority of our archive news databases are provided via the GaleProquest and UK Press Online database platforms.

This means that it is possible to cross search some of the content to find news from across a range of newspaper and related titles.


  • All Proquest hosted news sources can be searched individually, or in combination via the Proquest News & Newspapers collection.
  • Gale news sources can also be searched individually or in combination via the Gale Primary Resources service.
  • UK Press Online titles can be searched individually, or in combination via the UK Press Online Search system.

Gale Primary Sources is a research environment that integrates digital collections to enable research across a range of primary sources. Users are able to search across a wide array of materials and points in time.  

When you are searching, you can use the checkboxes to select one/some/all of the titles to which the University subscribes, as illustrated in the screenshot below.
