British Library Newspapers consists of collections from the British Library which span three hundred years of newspaper publishing in the U.K. The rise of newspapers in Britain was a phenomenon which characterized a new age. The bulk of advertising, particularly for new books and theatrical performances, has proved especially useful to historians. Taken as a whole, the huge production of newspapers in Britain provides an enormous resource for research with cultural trends, political currents and social problems all reflected in the newspapers.
