Paper of Record

Posted by Megan on May 16, 2011

The historical newspaper database Paper of Record is now back online.

Originally launched as a fully searchable digital archive of historical newspapers, Paper of Record was dearly loved by researchers before being acquired by Google in 2009. Much of the content disappeared as Google developed its own newspaper archive.

Last month, however, Paper of Record reappeared on its original Canadian website. The archive contains newspapers from Europe and the Americas, chiefly from the 19th century, but with some running up to the 2000s.

The titles can be browsed by country in addition to the full text search functions.
