More digitized British newspapers coming this year

Chris Paton on his blog posts an item giving links to a BBC interview in which Ed King of the British Newspaper Library, part of the British Library, confirms that more content will be added to the existing 2 million pages they currently have online. The interview expands on how digitized newspapers help democratize history, while also commenting on the context that's lost when researchers don't have access to the originals.

In the meantime the news of similar progress from Library and Archives Canada is 0.
