State Library Helps Residents Avoid News Archive Pay Walls

NPR – “The state of Tennessee is helping residents avoid paying for old newspaper articles. The state library has started keeping five years of archived stories available for free online. The state didn’t strike agreements with the four largest daily papers. In fact, some of them, including The Tennessean, didn’t know their archives were going to be opened up. The paper typically charges a fee for online access to stories more than a few weeks old.”
