Gale, part of Cengage Learning, is launching the Financial Times Historical Archive 1888-2006. This is expected to offer researchers and historians online access to the complete run of this daily business newspaper, from its first issue in 1888 to the end of 2006, with additional annual updates.

The resource contains approximately 790,000 fully-searchable pages, including every article, advertisement and market listing, in the context of the full page and issue on the day they were published. It has been created from existing microfilm master copies and each item is said to have been categorised by subject or topic to allow fast retrieval and review of relevant articles.

Mark Holland, publishing director for Gale Cengage Learning EMEA, commented: ‘The Financial Times Historical Archive 1888-2006 will be widely welcomed as an essential primary source for all researchers, teachers and students working on international business, finance and politics, from the height of the Victorian era to the 21st century.’

The archive is available as a subscription or one-off purchase to all academic, public and government libraries. The title will also soon be cross-searchable with The Times and The Economist.
