Newspapers Get Digital
4/1/2003
Historic and current news content will be available to libraries and academic institutions thanks to an agreement between ProQuest and Tribune Publishing.

Historic and current news content from the Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times will be available to libraries and academic institutions — and genealogists researching there — thanks to an agreement between ProQuest and Tribune Publishing. ProQuest <www.proquest.com> will digitize the complete historical backfiles of the Chicago Tribune dating from 1847 and the Los Angeles Times dating from 1881. In addition, the online information service will distribute current news from the Hartford Courant, The Newport News Daily Press, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Newsday, The Orlando Sentinel, the Baltimore Sun, the Stamford Advocate, the Greenwich Time and the Allentown Morning Call. The more recent content will span the 1980s to the present.

The agreement to digitize backfiles of Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times is part of ProQuest's Historical Newspapers Project — a 2001 initiative to make newspaper content available in digital format.
