Fold3 – London Times 1785-1820
It began as The Daily Universal Register in 1785, and became The Times on January 1, 1788, reporting on events of global importance in political, social, and commercial arenas. These daily editions (Monday-Saturday) cover news and public opinion of Georgian Britain, including historic events in the new United States, the Napoleonic Wars, and 19th-century trends in banking, democracy, and public life. Later issues offer an overseas perspective of the US Civil War, and domestic coverage of The Great War. Fold3 is an online repository for original historical documents, combined with the ability for users to make comments, annotations, and upload their own documents. The focus of Fold3 is to be a comprehensive collection of U.S. Military records. Some areas of Fold3 are free to use, while others can be freely searched and then viewed with a paid subscription.

We aim to acquire all newspapers published in the United Kingdom and in the Republic of Ireland, and our collections of newspapers from the British Isles are the finest in the world
About the collection
We hold over 34,000 titles from the UK and overseas, or 60 million individual issues. The newspaper collection includes the ongoing legal deposit collection of UK and Irish newspapers.
The collection was founded on two special collections of early English newspapers: the Thomason Tracts which contains newspapers and news-books from the English Civil War period and the Burney Collection of newspapers 1603-1818, collected by the Revd Doctor Charles Burney (1757-1817).
The collection of British newspapers is fairly comprehensive from the 1840s onwards.
Since 1869 British and Irish newspapers have been received through legal deposit by which publishers are required to send one copy of each issue to the British Library. The collection includes full runs of the main London edition of all the British national daily and Sunday newspapers. Most daily and weekly provincial newspapers are also held including some from the early 18th century onwards.
Newspapers are acquired selectively from overseas, in English and other European languages. This includes an extensive collection of newspapers from Commonwealth countries which were formerly received through colonial copyright deposit.
Currently about 1,400 UK and Irish newspaper titles are received on a daily or weekly basis, and nearly 100 titles from overseas.
The newspapers are held in print form (over 660,000 volumes, boxes or parcels of newspapers), as microfilm copies (630,000 reels), and as digital copies (over 20 million digitised pages).
What is available online?
Digitised newspapers can be viewed online via the British Newspaper Archive , a site developed in partnership with Findmypast, which has newspapers from across the UK, primarily for the 19th century but with a growing number of issues from the first half of the 20th century. Searching is free, but to view the newspapers requires a personal subscription. The BNA can be viewed for free in our Reading Rooms.
We subscribe to a range of electronic resources including major UK national and international newspapers.
What is available in our Reading Rooms?
British Library newspapers are also available online through British Newspapers 1600-1950 and other packages, available from Gale Digital Collections for subscribing institutions. These can be viewed for free in our Reading Rooms.
