Why are there years missing from a particular newspaper?

A year may be missing from a particular newspaper for one of two reasons.

If you are looking for a newspaper for which we have copies from the 1800s but not the 1900s, it's likely that we are still in the process of getting permission from the publisher to put the more modern material online. 

If there are a few years missing in a long run of a specific newspaper, it means that we've found an issue with some of the pages and have more work to do before we can publish those years.

We currently only publish complete years of newspapers, so if any pages are missing or not of good enough quality, we will hold back the publication of that year until we can correct it. We could hold back the entire newspaper, but we feel that it is better to provide whatever years are ready for publication as soon as we can.
