Local newspaper archives on Google
Excitement today from Fagstein and Coolopolis about the appearance on Google News of the Gazette’s archives from 1878 to 1986 and Le Devoir’s from 1910 to, it seems, as recently as September 2009. Fagstein also lists a number of other, older and in many cases more short-lived local papers that can be found via the site.
It’s nice to have this kind of data handy. I’d love to see the Montreal Star added to the list.
