Preserving News on the Margins

Why is this particular project needed?

  • Historic preservation efforts (microfilm projects, etc.) have usually focused on mainstream voices – even if the efforts have been focused on smaller communities
  • Many of you may participate in a statewide newspaper digitization project and/or NDNP. We all LOVE and APPRECIATE those projects, but we realize that ALL projects have limitations.
  • Papers that are born-digital or potentially have copyright challenges are usually avoided
  • We have often brokered deals with vendors who have digitized our materials to place behind a paywall. While there are cases where this makes sense, it is still restricted/privileged access and might include preservation? (trusted source?)
