London bookseller Samuel Palmer published the first volume of his index to The Times in 1867. Going back to October 1790, then publishing quarterly updates to December 1905, Palmer and his successors indexed articles in every issue, creating a resource that has long been recognised as an essential companion to the newspaper itself. Palmer's Index is the standard reference work for any library holding the newspaper in print or on microfilm. The online version cumulates 450 quarterly issues containing 3.7 million references on 28,000 pages. Page and column references are provided for navigation of print or microfilm.
Does not interface with the Times Digital Archive 1785-1985 (London Times) from Gale (1785-1985), which is produced by a competing database publisher.
