The Spanish Civil War began on 17 July 1936, when a military coup, aided by Italian and German forces, attempted to overthrow Spain’s democratically elected government. Spanish Morocco fell under military control with little resistance, as did the Canary and Balearic Islands. On 18 July 1936, General Francisco Franco spoke on a radio broadcast from the Canary Islands, announcing the military takeover. On the mainland, however, the revolt faced stiff resistance, especially in the urban and industrialised centres.

The large-scale digitisation of newspapers over the past decade has facilitated access to newspaper collections but also raised a series of issues for both libraries and users, and more specifically researchers: What does it mean to work in new ways with the traditional historical source that are newspapers? How does the formal transformation of this source from analogue, microfilm and paper collections to digital ones affect research practices and questions?
