It's not too late -- FREE access to Toronto Star (ends 31 May 2015)

Just learned that the Toronto Star Archives has been offering FREE access since May 17!

It’s not too late to check out this neat newspaper!

Free Access To Toronto Star Archives

The Toronto Star is offering free access to their archives May 17-May 31.

The archive dates covered are January 1, 1894-December 2011 for images.

Searches are by date or subject.  To access the archives go to: http://pqasb.pqarchiver.com/thestar/search.html  ...

Editor’s Note:  This really caught my eye as my daughter and I have been watching Murdoch Mysteries (via Netflix) which happens to be set in Toronto and revolves around a lot of true historical events.  With every episode we are always vetting some element of historical context.  It’s been fun.
