Finding newspapers

The library subscribes to a number of newspapers and newspaper collections electronically. Access is through Primo.


In Primo type 'newspapers' in the search box (change search criteria to 'Books, Journal Titles, etc').  Refine to 'Databases' when results returned to see the main newspapers and collections. Alternatively, type in a particular paper (i.e. The Guardian).


Here are the main collections available:-
