Clarification - the Québec provincial archives and Library(BANQ) during the last five+ years has undergone a transition from a repository approach to an interactive approach adding the necessary equipment and opening regional branches.

The BANQ has also embarked on an ambitious digitalization program that allows access to previously unavailable publications via other sources - Google archives, etc.

The Montreal Star and Montreal Herald plus numerous French newspapers in Québec fit under this umbrella.

The real value will be in the counterpoint or alternative presentation of stories that we already have access to as well as going beyond the snippet level of data that we have from archived sources.
