Digitization projects - updates
A project was just begun at UNC-Chapel Hill to scan a vast collection of 18th and 19th century personal documents. From the announcement:
Chronicling America just added three 19th century Hawaii newspapers to its archives.

There's also a Dutch digitalization project going.
The Royal Library is working on digitizing her newspapers, magazines and books from 1470 onwards. This will take some though though, expected end date: 2030.
This isn't the first project, amongst others, newspapers between 1910 and 1945 have already been scanned and are available, there is also a website where you can find reports, memos and all those paper that comes from the First and Second Chamber (aka our government), dating from 1917 to 1995.
