NewspaperARCHIVE.com has joined the vanguard of online content providers by implementing the ACAP content access site permissions toolset.

ACAP allows publishers to determine and control the use of published content by search engines. It establishes a toolset to give publishers and content aggregators the security that their efforts can be rewarded and monetized in a more effective way.

ACAP may be seen as an effort to restrict content access, but may actually have the opposite effect, in that publishers will become more comfortable making content visible for search if they have some control over the use of that content.

NewspaperARCHIVE.com takes this step as a statement of its unanimity with the evolving needs and goals of the newspaper publishing industry in the age of digitization.

NewspaperARCHIVE.com, the world's largest archive of online newspapers, contains over 80 million searchable newspaper pages, dating as far back as the 1700s. Users access the archive to view, save and print full-page newspapers from around the world.

NewspaperARCHIVE.com is a subsidiary of Heritage Microfilm. Heritage Microfilm is an archival microfilm company dedicated to providing the highest quality preservation microfilming services to newspapers throughout North America.
