It's no surprise that newspapers
and other outlets of old-school journalism have struggled in the digital space. However, a collaboration between the Mozilla

and other major news operations have joined the project, hoping to make their content even more relevant in the digital space.
After scanning and indexing over 3.5 million issues from over 2,000 newspapers, Google
has decided to halt its news digitalization project. The search giant announced the halt in an email sent out to newspapers involved in the project, saying that they would be focusing instead on their Google One Pass
Though Google is no longer accepting microfilm or issues for scanning, they have announced their intention to keep the archives free and available online at http://news.google.com/archivesearch

and browsing the free website.
