We are pleased to announce that you now have access to The Economist Historical Archive. You can access this digitised archive by searching the library catalogue, or you can access it directly by clicking here.
For over 170 years, the Economist has reported on the world’s political, business, scientific, technological, and cultural developments and the connections between them, appealing to the world’s elite for its economic and political analysis. This archive provides the complete run from 1843-2014, comprising over 8,000 issues digitally captured in full colour from print copies. It includes every page, leader, letter, article and financial indicator, allowing you to explore world events, consider their impact, and analyze the consequences.
The application of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology makes the archives fully text-searchable.
We continue to have access to the most recent years of the Economist in print in the library at PER 33 or online via ABI informs (from 1992) which you can access here.
