ATTENTION: Austrian Newspapers from 1703-2003 online

Post by Wulpe » 01 Oct 2003 13:44

The ANNO Project (AustriaN Newspaper Online) of the Austrian National Library is scanning austrian newspapers of the last 300 years and publishing them online for free.

There are already 350,000 pages online, and every week another 50,000 are added. Until the end of next year the project should be completed.

Examples:

The assassination of Franz Ferdinand (1914)

Emperor Franz Josef I dies (1916)

The assassination of Dollfuß (1934)

The ANNO project can be searched by date or by newspaper.

They are excellent. Is this maybe a spur in Austrian nationalism against EU? Or am I just "ein komische Vogel"

What do you mean? There's no such thing as austrian nationalism against the EU. And the site is just about scanning old newspapers, I don't understand what you refer to?

Fantastic idea...though I can understand most of it, could anyone give me some tips on reading the gothic print, please? It's a little confusing to say the least!

the letters that look like lowercase f's are most likely s's.

Usually the lower case letters are no big problem, with the exception already mentioned by Gyenes. I sometimes have problems with upper case at the beginning of words, especially if the words are unknown or the letter is infrequent. This happened when reading Lettow Vorbeck´s book in the original print, those african names can´t be "guessed" out of context.
