JISC digitised 100k pages from 19th century newspapers

from the announcement:
Quote:
An additional 100,000 pages of digitised newspaper content have now been added to the 19th-Century British Library Newspapers interface.

This is the first part of the second phase of JISC funding to add 1 million pages of new content to this unique resource in early 2010, published by Gale, part of Cengage Learning.
from:
http://digitisation.jiscinvolve.org/...ry-newspapers/

This is a continuation of a national digitisation project that was begun in 2006. The recent scans were added to a collection that already consisted of over 2 million pages.

Even though access is limited to British institutions (universities, colleges, schools, corporations) and I can't use it, I think this is rather neat.

Disappointing - it did sound neat! One of things I did as a bored freshman in college was spend a long afternoon reading the turn-of-the-(20th)-century school newspapers. I was going to go take a look...
