News archive search provides an easy way to search and explore historical archives of newspapers. You can search for events, people or ideas and see how they have been written about over time. You’ll also see a graphical overview of how your stories about your query have evolved over time through an automatically generated timeline. When searching on Google News, you can easily see historical results under the Archive sidebar, which provides links to results from relevant time periods.
Search results include content from a number of sources, including both partner content digitized by Google through our News Archive Partner Program and online archival materials that we’ve crawled. Search results can include content that is freely accessible as well as content that requires a fee. We’ll be sure to appropriately note any content that does require a fee. Articles related to a single story within a given time period are grouped together, to allow you to see a broad perspective on the topic that you’re searching. For further details, please see the News archive search help page.
If you're a content provider with online of offline historical content (including magazine, newspaper or even legal archives) that would be a good fit in News archive search, we'd be interested to hear from you.
