Google has added a new feature to their ever-growing services, 200 years of historical newpapers’ achives. Google has allowed researchers the ability to look up articles from newspapers from the past. What does this mean for the common person?
The immediate impact will be for high school and college students looking up information to help with their school papers. The ability to look back in time to help support your opinions is a key component of any good scholar. Newspapers are one of the best mediums for support in the academia world. Other than this, I am not sure who else would benefit from this mountain of information. Let me know who else you can think of that would want to read 200 years of old newspapers.
