The Times on line
« on: Tuesday 23 February 21 16:36 GMT (UK) »
I quite often hear folks saying that it is free for a period of time to search the TIMES digital collection, but by the time I get my act into gear either its no longer free or I can find the link anymore.

Please can anybody advise if its currently free and where/how ?   

Thank you Pete

Do you mean The Times online edition or The Times Digital Archive?

Digital archive is quite likely available through your public library.

Yes, they give you the first month free:

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/subscribe/

A really great feature is that you can search their newspaper archive going back to 1785. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/archive/ (you'll need to be a subscriber to see it)

To get some balance,  :P The Guardian also does digital subscriptions.

Their current offer is 50% off for 3 months.

https://support.theguardian.com/uk/subscribe/digital

(There's no newspaper archive with that)

I must be very balanced, Trystan, as I subscribe to both  ;D

The Guardian does have a digital archive that's hidden away:

https://theguardian.newspapers.com/

I'm wondering if the OP is looking for Times Digital Archive as Shaun mentioned.

Thanks folks, I'm hoping to get in the 1880's editions of the Times newspaper

As has been suggested, library membership could get you free online access to The Times Digital Archive. I have it via Lancashire Libraries and also Surrey Libraries.
