Scotsman Historical Archive

The Library recently acquired a digital archive of The Scotsman newspaper, covering the first issue in 1817 up to 1950. The Scotsman 1817-1950 adds to our growing collection of historical digitised newspapers. As well as The Scotsman, you can also search The Times, The Sunday Times, The Financial Times, and many regional newspapers.

Historians should find The Scotsman 1817-1950 useful, but it may also be of interest to others researching a historical topic. As well as news articles, it includes book reviews, cartoons, adverts, even weather forecasts!

You can access The Scotsman 1817-1950 from the A-Z list of Online Resources.

You can see a list of historical newspaper archives on our Newspapers guide.
