Rand Daily Mail access for British Library readers

ejournals@cambridge

From the British Library web site:

The latest addition to the electronic newspaper resources available to British Library readers is one that we’re particularly pleased to have secured, the Rand Daily Mail. Published from 1902 to 1985, the South African daily newspaper was renowned for its anti-Apartheid stance, with notable coverage of the Sharpeville massacre, the Soweto uprising and the death of Steve Biko. Closed down in controversial circumstances in 1985, the entire newspaper is being digitised and made available by research materials service Readex. Happily the British Library is making the entire archive available for remote access to anyone with a Reader’s Pass.
