The Chronicles in Preservation project aimed to study, document, and model the use of data preparation and distributed digital preservation frameworks to collaboratively preserve digitized and born-digital newspaper collections. This three-year project resulted in guidelines for preparing digital newspaper collections for preservation, interoperability tools to facilitate the exchange of these newspaper collections between repositories, and a comparative analysis of the strengths and challenges of three distinct DDP frameworks (MetaArchive-LOCKSS, Chronopolis-iRODS, UNT-CODA).
