Chronicling America - historical newspapers

From the Library of Congress and National Endowment for the Humanities, Chronicling America is a welcome addition to ProQuest's selection of historic newspapers (via Bunche) and NewspaperArchive , for those who have a subscription there (cheap, interesting...and there's lots of free stuff there too!). Excerpt from LOC on this new product:
Welcome to Chronicling America, enhancing access to America's historic newspapers. This site allows you to search and read newspaper pages from 1900-1910 and find information about American newspapers published between 1690-present. Chronicling America is sponsored jointly by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).
