ProQuest teams with Google

Google's done it again! They are now partnering with ProQuest to digitize newspapers from ProQuest's print archives. Read the full article from LJ Academic Newswire. When completed, this will be an interesting - and hopefully useful - resource to find articles in smaller newspapers that are not available in electronic databases elsewhere. ProQuest plans to maintain a strong distinction between its Historical Newspapers database, which includes the NY Times, and this free, web-based digital archive. Hopefully Google won't pull out of this one like it's been doing with a lot of the book-digitization partners...
