The National Library of Iran (NLAI) has launched numerous publications online. A one-time registration with a valid e-mail address is required. In case of problems with the registration a short request in Persian or English can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. An effort that is worth it:
The archive offers numerous Persian newspapers and magazines from four time periods:
- Qajars (1779-1925) 41 titles so far
- Reza Schah Pahlavi (1925-1941) 11 titles so far
- Mohammad Reza Schah Pahlavi (1941-1979) 160 titles so far
- After the Islamic Revolution 1979, 26 titles so far
There is also a collection of magazines in English, French and German.
Despite the lack of DOIs and full text by OCR, the collection of the Iranian National Library is an interesting source.
