Heritage Free Newspaper Microfilm Digitization Partnerships

Heritage Microfilm is currently partnering with select public, state, and academic libraries to digitize their newspaper microfilm for free. Heritage will digitize any off-copyright newspapers (typically those dated prior to 1978) that they do not currently hold. Partner libraries are given free, searchable access to the content through http://access.newspaperarchive.com in perpetuity. Partners also receive the searchable digital images on a hard drive to use however you wish. This really is a win/win.
