Library Week

The Gale Library in America – an American online library is FREE from the 10-24 April.  I like that as it’s not every day you get something for nothing.

So what can you see for FREE ?

1. Gale NewsVault — The definitive cross-searching experience for exploring Gale’s historical newspaper and periodical collections — with access to more than 10 million digitized pages.

2. Slavery and Anti-Slavery: A Transnational Archive — The largest, most ambitious collection devoted to the study of slavery. In its entirety, it will consist of more than 5 million cross-searchable pages. Part I: Debates over Slavery & Abolition available now.

Included in the above two links are the following :-

19th Century British Library Newspapers & Periodicals

19th Century UK Periodicals: Empire

Financial Times Historical Archive

Illustrated London News Historical Archive & Times Literary Supplement Historical Archive

So what are you waiting for ?  Get on the website and add ‘meat to the bones’ of those relatives on your family tree.
