    Default Times Digital Archive

    Can anyone tell me if the Times Digital Archive is still available free on the internet?
    I once had a link but it no longer works.
    Thanks

    If you mean via the library* mentioned sometime back that allowed remote access then the answer is no. It was discovered that they were breaking copyight and stopped access to non-local users.

    * I've forgotten the name of the library now.

    But The Times themselves seem to be still running their free trial:

    Hi,

    I can still access the Times archive via the Infotrac Galegroup website. It still works 90% of the time.

    Never had any problem with it, but you have to access it through your library membership.

    Curiosity got the better of me and I spent some time wading through the online services offered in Yorkshire Libraries . Seems that that fine county doesn't offer it.

    When it was first put up by Gale group it was very expensive, but the new Times online offering is much more reasonable on a pay per view basis although I can't find the relevant charge page anymore.

    Not as much fun as a permanent link through a library, but for folk in Yorkshire perhaps the only way!

    Quite an interesting piece about the creation of the digital archive by the 2 creators.

    (Northumberland offers it online.)
