We have been waiting 3 years with no feedback from the British Library...
This is one newspaper by the way not 3.
Any progress on this ? It would be very valuable to search all search words to be contained only in the same article and not scattered all over the page. "Smith", "Butcher", "townname" (then tick 'In same article') would narrow the search results to be very relevant for my searches. Currently get thousands of results for this search.
A little surprised such an important newspaper has not received more votes. Please vote ...
Why start another thread and split the votes? There already was started a thread on this with 105 votes.

We need an agreement with the copyright holder to digitise this. We will try to negotiate this but please be aware that it might take some time.
Hey Admin - You have already started adding 19th century editions. So is your agreement in place? if so you need to amend your statement.
Approaching 2 years now...
As wide a date range as possible PLEASE

Good news – The Beverley Guardian fits our inclusion criteria! We have researched the BL catalogue and it is available to us for digitisation. This title is only available to scan from the original paper (i.e. has not been previously microfilmed). Due to the British library’s move of the physical paper archive from Colindale to the custom built storage unit in Boston Spa, the paper is under embargo and we cannot digitise from paper until the new year. However, the good news is that we have the following years on our Digitisation Plan: 1856-1871.
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.
A bit more information on what this publication is may attract more votes

We are delighted to announced that we have requested the Goole Times from the holdings of the British Library and started the digitisation process. You can now search 3 years of the Goole TImes on the site with many more to come.
For the number of times i have typed goole.com instead of google.com, you deserve it for that reason alone!
I have created a seperate topic with clearer heading about the problems of using this site with Apple iPad

Thank you for getting in touch. We are super keen to include the St. James’s Gazette in the British Newspaper Archive project. So, the good news is that it is on our digitisation plan! As you can imagine we have a huge list to digitise. We will scan this as soon as possible. Please do keep an eye on the site!
3 votes and you say you are super keen to include? what is your selection criteria?

Can you give us a little more detail on this? How should this work? Should this be in the image viewer once you are viewing a particular page?
Sometimes you land on a page using a search term but there is no highlighted blue word. The search term summary on the previous page shows the terms were found but I can never find it on the image page. The ability to search within the found image page would be useful.

We have established a way of doing this through our search technology. Next steps are to start designing a user interface.
