The Scissors and Paste Database is a collection of manual transcriptions from British newspapers (1789-1850), alongside originals from colonial and American newspapers. It aims to be a central repository of reprinted news across the pre-telegraphy (1850) Anglophone world.

If you would like to contribute to the database, please contact Dr M. H. Beals at m.h.beals@lboro.ac.uk or via Twitter @mhbeals.
