> (2) Learn how you can digitize your historic newspapers
> Join us to learn how your library can provide fully searchable web access
> to your valuable historic newspaper collections through OCLC Digital &
> Preservation Resources.  Using Olive Software, designed for newspaper
> digitization, we can efficiently convert newspapers in print or microform
> to digital format and deliver an online file for your library's web site
> or for OCLC's hosted site.  As a result, your library users will have
> easily accessible historic content, presented in context, with the
> newspaper's original layout, graphics and reading experience.

> Join us to learn more about the new OCLC Digital Preservation Cooperative
> and an innovative new OCLC service --the CONTENTdm software suite.

> The Digital & Preservation Cooperative provides a central knowledge base
> for digital activities throughout the information industry. It acts as a
> clearinghouse for information on grant and other funding resources and on
> digitization collaborative projects. Cooperative participants come
> together to share knowledge and to increase the value of digital
> collections by combining them with other collections. The Cooperative
> provides the latest in best practices, standards and technology white
> papers to help you learn more about digitization and preservation trends.
>
>
> CONTENTdm enables your library to create, access and preserve special
> collections --on your library's computer or hosted on an OCLC server.
> With CONTENTdm, you can turn your special collections into fully
> searchable online resources accessible from any web browser.  And, as part
> of the Co-op, your library will receive a free starter kit to collect and
> store 500 images on the OCLC CONTENTdm hosted service.  We'll review the
> software with you and show you how quickly you can begin using this cost-
> effective digital library resource.
