INFO SCIENCE: The Library of Congress is putting 30,000,000 newspaper pages online over the next several years.
The government promises anyone with a computer will have access within a few years to millions of pages from old newspapers, a slice of American history to be viewed now only by visiting local libraries, newspaper offices or the nation's capital.
The first of what's expected to be 30 million digitized pages from papers published from 1836 through 1922 will be available in 2006.
I must say, this is awesome. However, the current interface leaves a bit to be desired.
