ProQuest Digital Microfilm on trial through December 10, 2009.

Microfilm newspapers are going digital. ProQuest has introduced Digital Microfilm, which offers users online access to scanned newspaper microfilm. Digial Microfilm is not a database — the newspapers cannot be searched, but are viewed  in the same way that microfilm is viewed, only online. Also, coverage is not historical, meaning there is no archive. (Coverage begins in 2008.) Titles currently available include the Sacramento Bee, LA Times, Orange County Register, the Wall Street Journal, and the Washington Post.
