Thanks to a request from a student in HCA the Library currently has trial access to the Financial Times Historical Archives, 1888-2016 from Gale. This is the complete run of the London edition of this internationally known daily paper, from its first issue through 2016.
Trial access ends 3rd June 2019.
The Financial Times began as a City of London news sheet and grew to become one of the best-known and most-respected newspapers in the world. Along the way, the Financial Times – printed on its distinctive salmon-colored paper – has chronicled the critical financial and economic events that shaped the world, from the late nineteenth and entire twentieth centuries to today. This historical archive is a comprehensive, accurate, and unbiased research tool for everyone studying the economic and business history and current affairs of the last approximately 120 years.
In this archive every article, advertisement, and market listing is included – shown both individually and in the context of the full page and issue of the day. Each item has been subject- or topic-categorized for fast retrieval and review.
You can access all the digital magazine archives already available at the Library via the Newspapers & Magazines database list. During the trial you will also be able to cross-search Financial Times Historical Archive, with other newspaper databases we have access to via Gale, via NewsVault which you can access via the Newspapers & Magazines database list. You can also cross-search it with other Gale databases we have access to via Gale Primary Sources.
Access is only available to current students and staff at University of Edinburgh.
