Elephind: An Online Newspaper Aggregator

There's a new online newspaper aggregator in town. It's called Elephind.

From the website:
The goal of Elephind.com is to make it possible to search all the world’s online historic newspapers from one place. 

With Elephind.com it is now possible for family historians, genealogists, and researchers to search historic digitized newspaper archives from around the globe. Elephind.com is much like Google, Bing, or other search engines but is focused on only historical, digitized newspapers. It enables you to search, for free, across many newspaper sites simultaneously, rather than having to visit each site separately. By clicking on the Elephind.com search result that interests you you'll go directly to the newspaper site which hosts that story.

Many of the smaller newspaper sites are not well known and may be difficult to find with the usual search engines but are searchable from Elephind.com.

Elephind also provides useful information for maximizing searches, including search tips. And you can browse the newspaper archive by title.

This is a great service that needed to be filled. As mentioned, this is a work in progress.

We're continuing to add more newspapers to Elephind.com, so if at first you can't find what you're looking for, please check back later. Or you can add your name to our mailing list, and we'll email you when a new collection is added.

Here at Veridian we've been involved with lots of newspaper digitization projects for customers like Cornell, Princeton, the National Libraries of New Zealand and Singapore, and many others. If you have any comments or suggestions about this site, or if you know of other free online newspaper collections which you'd like to see added to Elephind.com, please contact us.
