Finding Stuff on Google
I wish to add my voice to restoring the archive search tools as they existed just a few short weeks ago. I am a high school teacher and have found google news archive (GNA) invaluable in setting context for both writing about events as they happened and giving students a context for either the time in which a book is set, or the social context during which an author was writing. Just now I was refreshing my notes for using GNA as a resource for _October Sky__ and having students look at not just the major events in rocketry, Sputnik, coal mining and energy use, but also the ephemera of the society: clothing prices, food prices, cars being sold, help wanted and real estate ads. I relied on GNA for this sort of background information. What happened to all the archives of those news papers? How can I access them?
