The University of Bolton Library

English and Creative Writing


The Library provides access to a wide range of full-text newspaper content, including local, national and global news titles. 

Unlike the free content you might find on newspaper websites, these databases provide the full text of stories as they would have appeared in the print edition. They can be searched by keyword and date range, helping you research how significant stories and subjects have featured in the media.

Images and adverts are not always included, though in many cases coverage can go back many years, providing a valuable source of historical information.

Some newspaper titles may be available in both databases, though the date ranges and content coverage may vary.
