Tacoma Daily Index's historical archives to appear online via Google

The entire historic archive of the Tacoma Daily Index will be made freely available online.
Google unveiled a new project today with the aim of bringing historical newspaper content to the Web.
Sound Publishing, Tacoma Daily Index’s parent company, is among the many companies participating in the project, which will allow users to view digitally scanned versions of historical newspapers.
“We’re very excited to bring the entire history of the Tacoma Daily Index to the Web,” said Sound Publishing President Manfred Tempelmayr. “Projects of this scale are extremely time and resource intensive and we’re thrilled to partner with Google to make this available to our readers.”
The “initiative,” as it was described on The Official Google Blog, will appear as a function within Google’s News Archive feature.
No date has been announced for when Tacoma Daily Index’s historical archives will appear.
