Google Brings Old Newspapers Online

Google is expanding efforts to put old newspapers online and make them searchable. The project launched with “millions of articles” and will share AdSense revenue with publishers. And you laughed when we said Google will eventually be able to search everything from the internet to your sock drawer.

The effort uses scanning technology leveraged in Google Book Search, which enables Web viewers to read books online as if they were still in their original paper form. The initiative is intended to "bring old newspapers online and make them searchable and make them discoverable," said Marissa Mayer, Google vice president of products and search, at the TechCrunch50 2008 conference in San Francisco.
