The Daily Mail Historical Archive, 1896-2004 joins our list of current database trials, available until 6 May 2015.
For more than 100 years, the Daily Mail has been a major UK national newspaper acting as a barometer of 20th century popular culture and tastes, and sometimes helping to influence government policy.
It has a circulation of over 2 million, and its
website is the most visited news site in the world.
The Daily Mail is regarded as a ‘middle
class/middle market’ newspaper and it provides an
important alternative perspective to ‘the newspaper of record', The Times. It serves as the perfect complement to The
Times Digital Archive for students/researchers who require multiple viewpoints to understand the past.
The fully-searchable content includes large numbers of news stories, advertisements and images
that capture 20th Century culture and society.
The Archive also includes the Atlantic Editions, printed on board the transatlantic cruise liners between 1923-1931.
