New e-Resource - The Times of India (1838-2003)

Permanent access to The Times of India (1838-2003), is now available.

Originally founded to serve British residents of West India, this historical newspaper archive provides exceptional depth to the study of colonial and post-colonial times, British and world history, class and gender issues, comparative religion, as well as international relations, economics, cultural studies, terrorism, etc. 

Among the key historical events covered are the Sepoy Mutiny, which led to British rule in India; the formation of the Indian National Congress; the rise of Gandhi’s civil disobedience movement, the 1947 partitioning of India and Pakistan; the war over the Kashmir region, and the creation of Bangladesh; the Bhopal industrial disaster, and the rise of Pakistan as a nuclear power. Coverage of sports, the Indian film industry, and everyday life, is also included. 

The Times of India (1838-2003) is a very welcome addition to the Library's impressive collection of online newspapers and news sources.
