Electronic full-page newspaper archive from June 1844 to 2017. In recent years, it is the Metro edition of which the National Edition is a subset. Coverage includes all the stories, plus thousands of images, advertisements, classifieds, political cartoons, births and deaths from the pages of Canada's national newspaper, dating back to the pre-confederation era.

Globe and Mail is available in print, at several UBC Library branches and in microform in Koerner Library.


Printing from the G&M: The default for printing is the full page, which is not legible as it is condensed. To select a particular section or article, click on the Snapshot Tool button in the Adobe Acrobat toolbar. Select the area you want to print by clicking your mouse and dragging it to draw a box. Click on the print button in the Acrobat toolbar. Make sure the Selected Graphic in Print Range option is chosen, in order to print the selected portion only.

Browsing the newspaper by date: Under Search Options select a specific date, then under Document Type select "Front_Page"; Search. Once results are retrieved, you can select an article, then use the Page View (clickable) to browse by page for that date.
