Australian-New Zealand newspaper digitsation projects

Australian Newspapers Beta
The National Library of Australia, in collaboration with the Australian State and Territory libraries, are creating a free online service that gives full-text searching of newspaper articles. This will include newspapers published in each state and territory from the 1800s to the mid-1950s, when copyright applies. The first Australian newspaper, published in Sydney in 1803, is included in the program.

On 25 July 2008 the Australian Newspapers Beta service was launched to the public. The Beta service contains 70,000 newspaper pages from 1803 onwards and additional pages are being added each week.

The Library is looking for feedback, and will continue development of the beta service over the next few months. Check it here.

An hour ago, they launched a Facebook supporters page. I like this idea. The project lead is Rose Holley who used to be at the University of Auckland Library team, and was a key supporter and advocate for the NZ National Digital Forum.

NZ Papers Past
And yes , I know I should mention that if people, especially offshore are keen to follow this link, they should also be advised that the New Zealand effort, Papers Past is also well worth a visit, here.

Papers Past contains more than one million pages of digitised New Zealand newspapers and periodicals. The collection covers the years 1839 to 1920 and includes publications from all regions of New Zealand.

Take a look at what http://www.nambour-chronicle.com is doing. It's an archive of the Nambour Chronicle & North Coast Advertiser first published in 1903.

Although not on scale of NATIONAL Library Project I think the Sunshine Coast Regional Council have achieved a good result with their digitisation and web access. I gather work was done in Australia and not shipped of to India like the NLA project.
