The University of Chicago Library now provides online access to the historical backfile of The Times of India, one of the Subcontinent’s most important English-language newspapers. Library users can browse single issues and search all content (articles, editorials, and advertisements) published 1838-2003.
A link to the resource is available at here. Coverage includes: Bombay Times and Journal of Commerce (1838-1859), The Bombay Times and Standard (1860-1861), and The Times of India (1861-2003).
This new resource will be of interest across all disciplines. Social scientists and humanists will value the coverage of events from the late stages of the East India Company through colonial and into post-colonial India. It is a valuable resource for the study of law, business, economics, the arts, popular culture, international relations, social services, and public policy, as well as the biological and physical sciences.
Our one-year trial subscription will allow us to assess levels of usage and make the case for a permanent subscription.
