More digitized newspapers online

The Quebec Family History Society Roots 2011 conference starts on Friday, and received a publicity boost with an article in the Montreal Gazette.

In preparation for my newspaper talk next Saturday, I went looking for new digitized newspaper content online.

Papers Past, from the National Library of New Zealand, has added two papers in May.
The Auckland Star (1870-1903) was digitised in partnership with Auckland Libraries. The Rodney Libraries are acknowledged for their assistance in the digitisation of the
Rodney and Otamatea Times, Waitemata and Kaipara Gazette (1901-1945).

In the meantime, no initiative from Library and Archives Canada. Has LAC even sought any partnerships with local libraries?
