New resource for European newspapers

Europeana Newspapers is a new resource that allows researchers to access digitised newspaper collections from 22 national libraries across Europe. Major titles like Le Figaro are included. The search engine aggregates over 18 million historic newspaper pages. 10 million newspaper pages are being converted to full text. It has been extensively reviewed by Bob Nicholson here.
The project is funded by the European Union and has developed several open source software tools for people to re-use. These can be accessed here.
