For anyone unfamiliar with this program, it is about digitising all the
Australian newspapers which are out-of-copyright (meaning before 1955) and

Canberra Times and the Australians Womens Weekly being two that deserve
special mention for their co-operation to digitise post-1955). This is IMHO
the best open knowledge project we have in this country. It is available
online, free, and draws on the Power of the Crowd to do OCR correction,
tagging, etc to increase searchability so we can all contribute to making it
better. They also provide a Wikipedia-formatted citation for every newspaper
article, which makes life easy for the Wikipedia editor (yeah!).
