Newspaper archives currently free on footnote.com
I've posted about footnote.com on this blog in the past - a vast and growing online resource of documents relating to US history, uploaded both from the National Archives and also contributed by members of the site. Much of the content is only available to view with a subscription, but there is quite a bit that's free. This month, footnote are offering all their newspaper archives for free - go to: http://go.footnote.com/newspapers/?type=m to search or browse the archives and click through to page images. Note that you may need to sign up with the site to view the actual page images, and the archives of each newspaper are not necessarily complete.
