This "commemorative album" could serve as a somewhat basic pathfinder to the Obama newspaper record online. Some 120 front pages are shown in full color, captioned with their web addresses, from only the following dates: August 29, 2008 (Obama's nomination acceptance); November 5, 6, and 7, 2008 (his election); and January 21, 2009 (the inauguration). Pull quotes in a large font are offered on neighboring pages in some cases. There's also the full text of five Obama speeches: announcing his candidacy; accepting the nomination; speaking after his election victory; his inaugural address; and, oddly placed after the inauguration, his speech in March 2008 on the Reverend Wright and race. There's no listing of the newspapers included and no rationale offered for why these particular ones were chosen. The selection is worldwide, so several are not in English (only the banner headlines are translated). With insufficient apparatus to make this a reference tool, it's an optional selection.
