Over the years the mention of Heritage Microfilm on the NewsLib discussion group has always seemed to raise a debate. They have managed, however, to put a lot of newspapers' archives on microfilm, and are doing some great things with the online archives, making historical information available for free (see recent links to MLK, Titanic and Winter Games archives, for example).
Now here's something else interesting: a Heritage employee, 'Liz', has created a new blog, Daily Perspective, in which each day a news story from the archives is highlighted. Today's story from this day in history: JFK's body moved to Arlington National Cemetery, from the Herald Journal in Syracuse.

There are also links here to the free online news archives.
