[from Wesley Raabe, wraabe_at_unlnotes.unl.edu]

The following services (with powerful search tools such as full-text
keyword search and highlighted results) are available:
   - Readex Early American Newspapers
   - ProQuest American Periodicals Series
   - Thomson-Gale 19th Century U.S. Newspapers
I believe that all three are limited to institutional subscribers.

Paperofrecord offers short-term individual subscriptions and a range
of international papers (concentrated on Canada, but also some
Europe, North and South America, and Australia).

The following web sites, which include historical newspapers, are free:

The Daily Eagle from the Brooklyn Public Library has full-text search
and highlighted results: http://www.brooklynpubliclibrary.org/eagle/

The Valley of the Shadow offers a selection of newspaper articles.
The transcriptions and images are selective.

My dissertation, which includes an electronic edition of the National
Era version of Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin is also
available. http://www2.iath.virginia.edu/~wnr4c/index.htm. My
transcription is quite selective--Stowe's text only.

I'd be interested to know of other online newspaper resources.
