I’m happy to let you know that the Library currently has trial access to the Irish Newspaper Archive, the largest online database of Irish newspapers in the world covering nearly 300 years worth of history.
Trial access ends 20th March 2018.
The Irish Newspaper Archive allows you to search and browse millions of newspaper articles from over 60 titles from the 18th century onwards. Including both regional and national titles it includes such newspapers as Irish Independent, Irish Press, Kerryman, Freeman’s Journal, The Nation and Finn’s Leinster Journal. You can see a full title list at https://www.irishnewsarchive.com/plist_static/.
You can access all the online newspaper archives already available at the Library via the Newspapers & Magazines database list.
Access is only available to current students and staff at University of Edinburgh.
