The Newspapers for Schools 'News Library' database allows teachers and students to find newspaper articles as a PDF cutting or full page exactly as it was printed. The service offers the most efficient way of getting newspapers into the classroom whilst fully respecting copyright.

News Library contains over 35 million newspaper articles from over 140 UK national and regional newspaper titles, from 2006 to present day.
  • Easy to use: Search for or browse high quality real-life material in a single online resource.
  • Sharable format: Bookmark articles you find, send links or project PDFs onto screen in class.
  • Broad coverage: Compare coverage and show how local areas are affected by national events.
