Welcome to the seventh Archive Flashback post! We have decided to slightly change the format of this blog series to focus on some of our individual titles. This week we bring you a glimpse into the extensive digital archive of The Times Literary Supplement. 

The TLS has been a highly acclaimed journal for decades, originally published in 1902 as a supplement to The Times. The serial then went on to form its own publication in 1914, publishing some of the world’s most famous writers including the likes of T.S. Eliot, Virginia Woolf and A.N Wilson. It became renowned in many academic fields such as fiction, poetry, criticism and politics, with the popular supplement remaining as one of the world’s leading literary journals today.

Exact Editions are currently the only platform offering institutions access to the modern archive and all new issues of the magazine. In addition to this, the platform offers a bespoke reading experience featuring an exact replica of the print edition, complete with striking images and high definition text. View a selection of open access articles from the digital archive below!
