Google Launches Historical Newspaper Initiative

Google has announced a new initiative that aims to digitize newspaper archives. Through the initiative, Google will be partnering with newspaper publishers to bring what they estimate are billions of print records online.

Already available is a 1969 article from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette about the first landing on the moon.

Searching for the digitized records can be conducted via Google News Archives or through using the Google News timeline.
