I found a website from Memorial University of Newfoundland that contains a lot of interesting information about Newfoundland, and is easily searchable.
Here is an abstract from the site:
Welcome to Memorial University of Newfoundland's Digital Archive Initiative (DAI), your gateway to the learning and research-based cultural resources held by Memorial University and partnering organizations. From books and maps to photographs, periodicals, video and audio, the DAI hosts a variety of collections which together reinforce the importance, past and present, of Newfoundland and Labrador's history and culture.
