We have online access to a number of current and archive newspaper issues, see the list below for examples. For further information and links go to our Finding newspapers guide.

Accessing e-resources off campus

When you are off-campus you will need to login via the Online Resources Single Sign On page to identify yourself as a member of the University of Reading to gain access to our protected databases, e-books and e-journals. This login page will only appear when you try to access a resource, it is not a portal you login to prior to selecting a resource.
