The Sunday Times Historical Archive, 1822-2016: access now available

The Library is delighted to have purchased perpetual access to
 The Sunday Times Historical Archive 1822-2016This resource brings almost two centuries of news together, providing the complete run of the newspaper and its supplements, in one cross-searchable and browsable platform.

Despite the similarity of names, The Sunday Times was an entirely separate paper from The Times until 1966, when both papers came under common ownership. The Sunday Times remains editorially independent from The Times, with its own remit and perspective on the news.

The Library already has access to The Times Digital Archive 1785-2019 and recently added extra years of content to bring this newspaper more up to date. 

The Sunday Times is famous for many of its stories, including Kim Philby's outing as a Soviet spy, the thalidomide investigation, and the publishing of the forged Adolph Hitler diaries. Throughout its long history it has published many stories and historical items of Irish interest.
