Newspapers we should add next

Tell us what publications would be of most use to you. You can be as general (Victorian cycling magazines) or specific (South Wales Argus) as you wish! We take on board all of your suggestions but are bound by copyright restrictions and our agreements with publishers, these form the boundaries of what we may publish online.

  2. Goole Times

    We are volunteers at Goole Museum and would love to see the Goole Times on here, please. The newspaper covers not only the social, family and maritime history of the town, but also gives a wonderful insight into the development of a company town, established in the early 1800's with one main purpose - to provide the UK's furthest inland port. This would be such a useful and interesting newspaper to add to your wonderful site ... please?!!

  3. Any Hawick paper

    For a long time you had no papers published in the Scottish Borders. You've now added the Southern Reporter, thank you, but this provides very little coverage of news in Hawick, the region's largest town then. Please add one of the Hawick papers, like the Hawick News, to plug this gap. Thank you.

    Hi Vivienne,
    Hopefully you will have seen that the Hawick News has been making it’s way on to the site as we digitise it. You can access it directly here: http://bit.ly/1DDUI2d

    Best wishes,

    Team BNA


    Hi Vivienne, Thank you for your feedback. We have investigated the possibility of inclusion. Good news – The Hawick News is within scope for inclusion as we have an agreement with the publisher. It was published from 1889.

    We have added the following years to our Digitisation Plan: 1889-1951

    Please be aware that until we have received the material into our studio and checked it, it is not possible to guarantee that it will be digitised.

    Best wishes,

    Team BNA

  4. norfolk/suffolk local papers, especially from Lowestoft.

    Henrik Ibsen's unknown grandson was rescued by Lowestoft fishermen during the great gale of november 1893. Actually it would be a great idea to add issues of all british newspapers from about 18th to 25th of november 1893 to uncover all ov the drama this gale cost. Hundreds of lives were lost, and lots of heroism unfolded.

    Thank you for your feedback. For this newspaper, we have the following titles in, or planned for, our digital archive:

    1854–1903 The Derbyshire Times and Chesterfield Herald
    1903–63 The Derbyshire Times, etc.

    Unfortunately much of the post 1900 material is only available as the original paper copy from the British Library. Whilst they move the collection from Colindale to Boston Spa, paper is in embargo. We are looking forward to scanning from paper again in the new year!

    Best wishes,

    Team BNA

  6. Everyone wants 'their' newspapers scanned

    The list below illustrates that everyone wants 'their' newspapers scanned. Don't choose at random, or fill geographic gaps, get people to suggest what you scan next. Then you have customers eager to access. (Woburn Sands Bucks, by the way...)

    Thank you for your comment. We are trying our best to choose titles that you would like. We have some limitations with respect to copyright and of course, availability of the original material to scan. Apart from that, it’s a huge project and we’re excited to increase our coverage. We hope that you feel you can use this feedback forum to suggest titles – if it gets lots of votes it will be higher on our radar ; )

    Best wishes,

    Team BNA
