Page Archives of the Syracuse Post-Standard newspaper

The Post-Standard newspaper in Syracuse has scanned back issues of it and other Syracuse papers (Herald-Journal and Herald American) and placed them in an online database. There are currently nearly 4 million pages available, with more being added. By the end of the year, there will be nearly 5 million pages available. Most of the pages are from 1900 to the present, with some going back to the mid-1800s. Heritage Microfilm Co. created the digital assets for the newspaper.

The Page Archive web site notes that:
These Syracuse Newspapers pages are hosted by, but brought to you by The Post-Standard with the generous contributions of the Onondaga Historical Association.
Unlimited access to the archives is available for $6.95/month or $59.95/year.

Laura Soto-Barra, Assistant Managing Editor/Library of The Post-Standard, is thrilled that these archives bring together materials that were owned by different organizations, thus creating in one spot the breadth of materials that was not available before.
