New to Newsplan?
The purpose of the NEWSPLAN database is to list historic newspaper titles and tell you where they are available to view. You cannot search for news items in the newspapers on this web site.
Use only one of the searches to find Publications / Locations.
Please note that searches cannot be combined, pick only one option from the searches on the left:
- Use Name of Newspaper to find when a particular newspaper begins and ends and find the nearest library that holds the paper.
- Use Library Name to pick a library from the drop down list and see all the newspapers files kept at your chosen library, record office or museum. (Otherwise just leave the British Library default.)
- The Town/County search will show all the newspapers published in a chosen town or county or with that place name in their title. It does not tell you all the places a newspaper reported on. If possible search for a specific town as the whole county lists are very lengthy.
