Google New Archives


Hello everyone my name is Heather and
this is my YouTube channel research Xpress and today I want to tell you
about news archives great locations to find original news materials everywhere
from the 1700s to the early 2000s now this may not sound all that interesting
or exciting in the realm of research but when it comes to finding original
advertisements when it comes to finding original art when it comes to finding
historical materials in newspapers periodicals all of that information it’s
so easy to find in two separate locations that I’m going to quickly show
you in this video so the first place to go is the Google News archives this is
hundreds of newspapers all collected and unfortunately Google stopped this
project but in 2006 they started collecting and scanning newspapers from
the 1700s to the early 1900s so that we could have access to them actually to
the mid 1900s and you have the opportunity to search them look at them
scan through them make copies use them however you wish
unfortunately this project was put on halt because it was so massive because
if you think of every town that everyone lives in throughout the United States
across the world everywhere all of the different newspapers collecting them all
scanning them it is a massive project anyway so many of them are here for us
to be able to look at peruse and search you can go through them you can look at
them but there are hundreds here so nicely Google has a search engine up top
now as always I always search teens teenagers and politics so you can search
the archive as you can see or if you can search the web if you search the web
that’s going to go back to Google so you don’t want to go that route you want to
search the archive so I’ve put in teenagers I could also put in politics
this time I’m just gonna put in teenagers and when you do that you’re
going to get everything that comes up about teenagers you can also put in
politics that’s fine and from here I’m going to look through and see what it’s
like to see about teenagers all throughout the different information
that they have there are many different newspapers as
you can see there’s 6000 results for a Google search not bad and I’m going to
click on dealing with stress as a teenager you can look at some of the
articles this is from 1996 you can actually see one of the newspaper
articles that has come up this is actually a scan from that particular
article during that time and we can go back to the list I could actually skip
back and I could do teenagers and politics make that scan and see what
comes up now only 32 results not as much going on here but we can also look at
maybe Lynn Glynn puts aside her life to campaign for her father because you can
already see this is a scan from the newspaper you can see the clothes you
can see the articles you can see the images so you can already have an idea
what this is all about now as I said this was halted they were no longer able
Google was no longer able to continue this project so if you like what you see
and you want to be able to go into more of this you can also go to the thymus
machine over with New York Times and New York Times actually has newspapers
dating from 1851 to 2002 and so again if I wanted to do teenagers or just look at
teenagers you can actually look at and you can see an image of the newspapers
the articles and a quick brief summary of what the articles are about so you
can see from 1988 in New Jersey town confronts teenage drinking you can bring
that up you can actually see the article you can actually view the article
abstract they actually have a login and you can view the free article abstract
and see what the article is about you can see the original article the images
information and more and you can focus in solely on this particular tool but
this is only with New York Times you get more items objects and things to focus
on newspaper wise with Google News plus you get multiple languages and things to
focus on you’re looking for a place to search for newspapers periodicals
advertisements actually had a group of students who are looking at smoking
advertisements Oh forty years which they all stopped back
in the mid-1980s if I’m remembering correctly so if you’re looking for
something through the 50s 60s 70s 80s things like that
a very good place to find those types of things if you are doing PR advertising
public service announcements PSAs for class great place to be able to search
things to think about places a search new places to look
hope you enjoy keep your eye out for more videos if you liked it share
