Google quadruples newspaper offerings

Google has updated its index, quadrupling the number of articles included in News Archive Search. It now includes articles from several new publications, including the Halifax Gazette, Sydney Morning Herald, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, and the Village Voice. They have also added new international publications such as the Manila Standard, The Nation from Thailand, and many others.

To showcase their offerings Google points us to the complete June 2, 1753 edition of the Halifax Gazette, one of the oldest newspapers digitized to date.
