Digital Preservation of Newspapers: Findings of the Chronicles in Preservation Project
In this paper, we describe research led by Educopia Institute regarding the preservation needs for digitized and born-digital newspapers. The Chronicles in Preservation project, builds upon previous efforts (e.g. the U.S. National Digital Newspaper Program) to look more broadly at the needs of digital newspapers in all of their diverse and challenging forms. This paper conveys the findings of the first research phase, including substantive survey results regarding digital newspaper curation practices.
