Your vote could help Diss Express archive become available to all
The Diss Express needs your help.
The British Library is currently holding a vote to determine which newspaper’s archive they should next put online — and the Diss Express is in contention.
The newspaper, which has served south Norfolk and north Suffolk since 1864, is available to view in its entirety on microfiche at the British Library in London.
However, should the title be successful in the vote, it would mean anyone with access to a computer and the internet would be able to flick through the 152-year back catalogue of the Diss Express.
Everybody is allowed a maximum of ten free votes, and up to three votes may be cast for any of the local newspapers currently up for consideration.
Luke Page, content editor for the Diss Express, said: “The Diss Express is a unique archive that is a goldmine of local information.
“There are many local history fans in the area, so it is no surprise to see the level of support behind this bid.”
