The Times Digital Archive, 1785-2008 contains the Times of London, fully scanned and searchable.  Widely regarded as the world's "newspaper of record," The Times has offered readers in-depth, award-winning and objective coverage of global events since 1785, and is the oldest daily newspaper in continuous publication.

The library thanks Senior Vice Chancellor B.J. Reed for providing funds to support the purchase of this database.
