British Newspaper Archive additions for July

The British Newspaper Archive now has a total of 26,868,088 pages (26,297,490 last month).

The 12 papers (34 last month) with new pages online this month include 3 (16) new to the collection.

The focus has been on adding multiple years for a newspaper rather than one or two for many titles.

Five of the seven papers with more than 10,000 pages added are Irish:

Irish Independent
92442 pages added
1912-1913, 1915, 1989-1990, 1993-1997, 1999-2000

Oxfordshire Weekly News
22102 pages added
1869-1895, 1898-1926

Belfast Telegraph
12700 pages added
1913-1916, 1918-1920

Evening Herald (Dublin)
189316 pages added
1897, 1899, 1901, 1907, 1925, 1951, 1986-1987, 1990, 1994-1996, 1998, 2001-2002

Liverpool Echo
144696 pages added
1968, 1971-1973, 1975-1984, 1986-1988

Freeman's Journal
34854 pages added
1912-1924

Sligo Champion
12566 pages added
1983, 1988-1995

I'd love to be able to report of newspapers digitized by Library and Archives Canada during the month.
