Google quadruples archives of news articles

About one year ago, Google launched an initiative to digitize newspapers and make them accessible and searchable online.

Now they have updated their news index with 4 times the number of articles included in News Archive Search. In addition, articles from more publications have been added, including the Halifax Gazette, Sydney Morning Herald, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and the Village Voice.

Explore this newly available primary source material by searching on Google News Archive Search or by using the timeline feature after searching on Google News. Many articles with free abstracts require a subscription or a fee per article. A handy feature of the advanced search shows links to related web information.
