Celebrate the Life and Work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. With New Digitized Newspaper Database

by , Comments

I just mentioned this new database on ResourceShelf and I think it's more than worthy of a post here on the SEW Blog.

The MartinLutherKingJrArchive.com database was released on Friday by NewspaperARCHIVE.com.

This archive/database (FREE) chronicles the life and work of Dr. King. It contains more than 50,000 digitized original newspaper pages (keyword searchable). A browsable timeline is also available.

The archive includes stories from days of the Montgomery bus boycott, the I Have A Dream speech, Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination on April 4, 1968, and thousands of other headlines on the civil rights leader.

Full image newspaper pages can be viewed online as PDF files. Pages can be saved locally.

NewspaperARCHIVE.com is a company that offers full text and full image searchable access to almost 29 million digitizes pages from newspapers. It's a fee-based service but they also offer several freebies including an historical crossword puzzle each day.

NewspaperARCHIVE.com is one of many companies doing newspaper digitization work. Other companies include ProQuest and ColdNorthWind. ColdNorthWind offers a consumer accessible database at PaperofRecord.com
