Australian National Library opens newspaper archive

Australia’s National Library has launched an archive of images and articles from Australian newspapers between 1803 and 1954.

The beta site currently features scanned pictures and text from 11 titles.

Content is easily navigable thanks to a panning tool and zoom controls, and can be searched by date, title, state or article keyword.
