Die Zeit Launches Free Online Archive

Die Zeit, a German newspaper, has launched a free online archive that goes back to 1946 and contains over 250,000 stories. The archive is available at .

My German’s not very good, but it looks like you can browse the contents by year, do a full text search, or do field searching, including title, author, year, and date span.

I did a search for “Dusty Springfield”. There were seven results, ranging from 1973 to 2007. Results included the title and author of the article as well as a snippet. Click on the title and you’ll go to the article. It looks like just the text is available — I didn’t see digitized images.

You’ll get more out of this archive, obviously, if your German is better than mine. One caveat: the search results seem to take a little longer than usual.
