Globeandmail.com, Micromedia ProQuest to Market Newspaper Archive

Globeandmail.com and Micromedia ProQuest have announced an agreement to bring to market "Canada's Heritage from 1844," an archived product that presents a digitized full-image version of the complete works of The Globe and Mail newspaper since its inception as The Globe in 1844. It will be available on a subscription basis and is targeted at the educational and public library markets. Canada's Heritage from 1844 is built using the Archive Publisher from Cold North Wind, Inc., an Ottawa-based provider of newspaper archive technology.

The full pages of Canada's Heritage from 1844 can be accessed by subscribers through the Micromedia ProQuest Web portal, Canada's Information Resource Centre. The 1.4 million-page archive is claimed to be the most extensive in Canada, and the breadth and depth of the content make it a vital and convenient research tool for educators, librarians, and researchers. Coverage includes major events in Canadian history, plus thousands of images, advertisements, classifieds, political cartoons, and birth and death notices from issues of Canada's National Newspaper, dating to the pre-confederation era.

Micromedia ProQuest is a Canadian publisher and distributor of proprietary and third-party reference, financial, bibliographic, and directory information for the academic, corporate, government, and library markets. Micromedia ProQuest is a member of ProQuest Information and Learning (http://www.il.proquest.com).
