The Times Digital Archive 1785-1985 has now been added to the Library's network of electronic databases and CD-ROMs. Although presently only covering from 1913 to 1985, when it is completed at the end of this year the archive will consist of every entire page of The Times newspaper in a 200-year period from 1785 - all fully searchable online. Advertisements and images are included, and searches can be by article and by page, with results grouped in helpful categories (such as news, editorial, and advertising). Pages can also be viewed as PDFs. The Electronic Resources Network is accessible via dedicated workstations in the George IV Bridge Building.
