Herriman Saturday (plus Newspaper Archive Sites)
Florida Digital Newspaper Library -- an eclectic collection, but rather obscure search and browse capabilities make it of questionable utility
Labels: Herriman's LA Examiner Cartoons
Looking through the list, surprised how many French Canadian papers they have. Interesting to know that Google wasn't being Anglo-centric with their archive.
Now if you can tell me how to run a search on their archive that actually RETURNS SOME HITS I'll be beyond impressed. The digitization of the papers is so bad they obviously couldn't OCR much in them! I run searches on stuff I know darn well is in their archive and usually it's "0 Results Found"
