The goal of this article is to classify and analyze the main products and services that provide access to online print media contents. The main factor determining the product type resides in a definition of the product's primary user function. Under this lens, four primary access function classes were established: 1) access to newspapers; 2) information search; 3) information clippings, and 4) content aggregation. For each of these classes, several sub-types are described and analyzed, including directories, newspaper archives, historical press archives, press data bases, press clippings, online clipping, social network clipping, manual and automatic aggregators, and social aggregators. The article also provides several illustrative Spanish- and English-language examples.
