International Newspaper Databases
ABYZ News Links
one of the best directories of print and broadcast media with a presence on the Internet. But there are no common standards about whether news will be archived and, if it is archived, how completely, for how long and whether it will be free. Licensed databases, paid for by the library, are stable and the years of coverage are made clear.
