Brooklyn Daily Eagle available online at BPL website

The Brooklyn Public Library has made available the Brooklyn Daily Eagle (1840-1902), in a fully searchable format. The feature, currently in beta testing, brings up full scans of each issue. Clicking a story or ad brings an enlarged view. This should be a great resource for historians and genealogists (the obituaries are also searchable), plus it’s just damn cool to be able to dive into the borough’s history in such a high-tech and intuitive way.
