Glasgow Herald 1806-1990 online at Google

Google has extended its archive coverage of the Glasgow Herald to now cover the period from 1806-1990 at The collection is not complete, and appears to be a work in progress. Whilst the British Library 19th Century Newspaper Collection has issues from 1820-1900 (mainly from 1844 onwards), this collection on Google has substantial coverage for the pre-1844 period, though according to Alan of the Talking Scot forum is not quite so good when it comes to searching. Nevertheless, it is free, and can certainly be browsed as well as searched.

Google also has the Glasgow Advertiser from 1789-1801 on the site at
