    Using information from digitized newspapers

    Can I use information that I have found in a digitized newspaper for my blog or is that not allowed.

    Hi JudithMargaret,

    The National Library of Australia has digitised newspapers published prior to 1954 on the understanding that they are out of copyright. As they are out of copyright they can be reproduced and used, such as on blogs like yours. You should, however, make sure you give proper attribution. If you click on the "Cite" button (top left hand side) of the screen with the page or article, this will give you some ways you can use to cite the page or article.

    Cheers,
    Jess

    Hello,
    Is that still the case? In 2012, pre-1954 were out of copyright. Does that mean that now in 2019, pre-1961 newspapers are out of copyright?
    Thanks so much.
