Australian Newspapers: digitalizzazione dei quotidiani storici australiani (dal 1803 al 1954)


NDP_Header-2

Australian Newspaper è un servizio web ad accesso gratuito sviluppato dalla National Library of Australia come parte del più ampio progetto Australian Newspapers Digitisation Program. Vengono messe a disposizione dei lettori le riproduzioni digitalizzate delle pagine dei principali quotidiani pubblicati in Australia tra il 1803 e il 1956.

The National Library of Australia, in collaboration the Australian State and Territory libraries, began a program in March 2007 to digitise out of copyright newspapers.

In July 2008 the Australian Newspapers Beta was released to the public. This is a free online service that enables full-text searching of newspaper articles. The service includes newspapers published in each state and territory from the 1800s to the mid-1950s, when copyright applies. The first Australian newspaper, published in Sydney in 1803, is included in the service. By 2010 the service will comprise 40 million searchable articles.
