Google News Archive Search, Stage 2

Filed under: aggregator,archives,digitization,Google,newspapers — Lynne @ 12:22 pm

Earlier this week, Google officially announced the expansion of their digital newspaper archive. When Google News Archive Search was first launched in 2006, the focus was on major media. The search engine giant is now indexing and digitizing papers from around the country, including smaller local papers.

You can find material by searching the Google News Archive or by using the timeline feature after searching Google News. (If you haven’t checked out the timeline feature yet, its pretty cool.) News Archive search results include both free and for-a-fee results. The advanced search options allows you to specify your preference.

This announcement is not without controversy. Many newspapers see their archives as a revenue source, while others find the Google program attractive.
