Google Old newspapers get online launch

BBC NEWS | Technology | Old newspapers get online launch

A new initiative to bring old newspapers that pre-date the digital age to the web has been launched by the search giant Google.

The company has partnered with around 100 newspapers to digitize them and make scanned copies available online.

This means users will see entire pages of the original paper as they were printed at the time.

"This is huge," said Google's Marissa Mayer. "We're branching into a new form of content."

The company's vice president of search products announced the new feature at the TechCrunch50 conference in San Francisco, a forum for start-up businesses pitching to venture capitalists and the technology industry.
