Web Site: Google News Archive

February 3, 2010

You’ve probably figured out I love to recommend  Google for research; but, not just any Google will do.  I’ve mentioned  Google Scholar, Google Books and Google Uncle Sam (U.S. Government Search) in past blog entries. Well here’s  a new one to add to the list.

Google News Archive!

The Google News Archive Partner Program is to (as they put it) “…make historical newspaper archives discoverable online.”

Want to see an article from the Pittburgh Press on Theda Bara and see it in the context of newspaper page? Well you can… just click on the image below and you’ll go to the page.

Google provides an advanced archive search tips page along with the basic News Archive Search Help.

When you do a search, play around with the time line feature — you can come up with some interesting results besides viewing the results daily, weekly or monthly.

You can currently limit to specific newspaper and view entire issues of selected archives — other results will take you to publisher sites. Not currently available is a save or print feature, but you can create links to return to the page.
