Two UK Newspapers Now Available Online

The “Guardian,” a famous UK newspaper, and the “Observer,” the world’s
first Sunday newspaper, are going digital.

So far, issues of the “Guardian” from 1821-1975 and the “Observer”
from 1900-1975 are available. In early 2008, both of the newspapers
will be online in their entirety (from 1821 for the former and 1791
for the latter). Both newspapers are searchable. Searching is free,
but you must buy a timed access pass to view entire articles.

Visit the “Guardian” website for more information:
