Australia’s Library Newspaper Archive Project Begins

The National Library of Australia is ready to begin a major undertaking of newspaper digitization. Within the next five years, Australian newspapers printed before 1954 will be available online for free. According to NLA director-general Jan Fullerton, “Within this project, we are planning to digitise one newspaper from each of the capital cities and the territories from the beginning of their time until 1954 which is the copyright cut off.” [Reported in The Age]
