National Library of Wales Launches New Welsh Journals Website


The National Library of Wales in Aberystwyth has launched the fresh new Welsh Journals website – its largest research resource to date.

The website allows free digital access to more than 1.2 million pages from more than 450 Welsh journals.

Providing free remote access to a variety of Welsh and English language journals published between 1735 and 2007, the website allows users to search the content as well as browse through titles and editions.  The website also enables users to browse by year and decades and provides a link to the catalogue entry for each journal.

Titles range from academic and scientific publications to literary and popular magazines and relate to a variety of subjects.  From archaeology to science, political satire and theological matters, they contain a wealth of information relating to Wales and its intellectual history.
Dr Dafydd Tudur, digital access section manager, said:

“Welsh Journals contains the nation’s intellectual history.  It is a unique window into the way we have understood and interpreted ourselves and the world around us over a period of nearly three centuries.”

Whether you want to find the recipes that your grandmother used or gather information for academic work, Welsh Journals Online is an invaluable tool for anyone with an interest in Welsh history.

The website combines material digitised by the JISC funded Twentieth Century Welsh Journals project and the programme to digitise 19th and early-20th century newspapers and journals, which was funded by Welsh Government and the European Regional Development Fund.

Welsh Journals Online is a sister-site to Welsh Newspapers Online, which was launched in 2013 and which last year received almost half a million visits.
