Database Trial: Times Digital Archive

UMBC now has trial access to the Times Digital Archive. The trial runs through October 20, 2010.

The Times Digital Archive is a full-image online archive of every page published by The Times (London) from 1785-1985. The text within the images is fully searchable at the article level. Users can easily search news articles, obituaries, advertising and classifieds - virtually everything that appeared in the newspaper. Results are displayed at the article level and users may view the article - or the full page upon which it appeared.

For off-campus access, please login via VPN first (http://vpn.umbc.edu). Then follow the link under "News & Events" on the library homepage. For more info on remote access, see http://aok.lib.umbc.edu/services/remoteaccess.php
