Has anyone ever used http://www.newspapers.com/? I've found a little trick you can use to get their articles (but not clippings) for free.

Do a Google search of:

"search query" site:newspapers.com

Click on a result, and scroll down to the "OCR text" box, and all the text from that page of the newspaper is available.


I have an account. Speed and search features are great, as is the clipping tool. The best part is the constant stream of new content though, even if most of it has appeared on other newspaper sites before.


It seems to be the same stuff as Newspaper Archive. Is it a better service?
