The last issue of the Päivälehti newspaper on 3rd July 1904 was significant in Finnish newspaper history. The governing officials banned the publication of the newspaper title based on having too nationalist and revolutionary content. The editors started to publish under a new title after only a couple of days, and it turned out to be the biggest newspaper in Finland, Helsingin Sanomat. In connection to the single issue of Päivälehti, we can inspect the development phases of digital cultural heritage and its access. The issue and the title can today be used in a digital form by researchers and citizens alike. In addition, archives related to the editors and publisher are digitally available. It has been a long path from the era of censorship to the culture of open research and citizen science.
