News from the past

The announcement of Google's News Archive service http://news.google.com/archivesearch proved a catalyst for some trial searches for turn-of-the-last-century architect George Barber. Barber fans will be pleased to know that some items did turn up, although they will definitely need to search America's Historical Newspapers, one of the UNLV Libriares databases [limited to UNLV faculty and students; at http://www.library.unlv.edu/collections/newspap.php] as well. Google News Archive search proved effective for the more recent past, but America's Historical Newspapers was more productive for turn-of-the-century materials. Another point worth noting: many of the items retrieved in the Google search are only available for a fee. For America's Historical Newspapers, the subscription fee has been paid by the Libraries! And before you pay to access items in the Google results list, check UNLV Libraires newspapers databases -- some of the items in the Google results are in newspapers available in Libraries' databases.
