The purpose of this project was to evaluate the post-1955 newspaper collection at The University of Queensland (UQ) Library. All formats were considered – microform (microfiche and microfilm), print, direct subscription online to individual titles, and accessing articles through aggregator databases such as Factiva. The time period, post 1955, was selected because the National Library of Australia’s Trove collection of digitised newspapers covers Australian newspapers from their inception to December 1954. An important caveat to be noted is that copyright dictates that the post-1955 editions of newspapers will not be digitised until 2025, i.e. 70 years after publication.
