In order to take advantage of the free Research Room access to the British Newspaper archives, it is necessary to have a login and password. You can speed things up by making one ahead of time. You won’t receive the free access anywhere except the Research Room, but you’ll be able to spend more time researching and less getting set up if you already have an account. Here’s the procedure:
1) At the top of the home page http://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk click on the green Register button. 2) Enter your first name, last name, Country of residence, e-mail address and make up a 6 character password. Check the "I agree to the terms and conditions" checkbox, then click on the green Register for free button. 3) An e-mail will arrive in your inbox, with a link you will need to click on, in order to activate your account. Go ahead and activate it. 4) When logging back in, you will need the e-mail address that you used to register, and the password you created, so write it down and bring it with you to the conference.
