National Newspaper archive updated

From an email I received this morning:



1. Sydney Morning Herald
 
The first digitised issues of the Sydney Morning Herald are now available.  We have started from the first issue 1831 and are making our way forwards to 1954.
 
The first 20 years (18,000 pages) are now available as follows:
 
Sydney Herald 1831-1842
Sydney Morning Herald 1842-1852
 
Issues from 1852 - 1954 will be made available each week from now on through til early 2010. In early 2010 The Sunday Herald 1949-1953 will also become available.
 
We would like to acknowledge the financial contribution of the Vincent Fairfax Family Foundation who have given $1 million dollars towards the digitisation of this title.
 
2. The Argus (Melbourne)
 
The Argus  (and its previous title the Melbourne Argus) from 1846 - 1945 are now completed and available. The remaining 10 years (1945-1954) of the Argus will be made available in 2010 (mid to end of year).
