All-conquering search giant Google is expanding its digitisation programme of US newspapers with more signing up to the scheme to make their classic print stories viewable and searchable through Google News.
The New York Times was one of the first to sign up to the project in 2006, with some of its stories available to see now – but for a one-off charge of $3.95. Google’s official blog has more on the plans.
Both The Times and The Guardian have launched their own archives in the last 12 months – The Guardian is available for free for a two-week trial while The Times has unlimited access for a “free introductory offer”.
