Google bringing more old newspaper stories online

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Google is working with more newspapers to make digital copies of old news stories accessible through its search engine.

The initiative announced Monday expands a program that Google began in 2006 with major newspapers like The New York Times and The Washington Post. Google now hopes to include the archives of more small and medium-sized papers.

Google didn't immediately specify how many papers have now joined the initiative. In a blog posting, the company said it is aiming to index billions of pages of newsprint.
