4 Big Challenges in Downloading Historical Newspaper Articles

I have been researching online historical newspaper sites for several years, both the free ones as well as the subscription-based sites. Their software capabilities, independent of the size and quality of their scanned collections, break down into two parts:

  • How do you search the site and find “stuff”
  • How do you download and save the articles that you find

This research tip is all about the second part – how do you download and save materials? This is the biggest problem that online newspaper researchers have after they have found an article and wish to save it.
