There is a common misconception that digitizing the archive of a newspaper is simply a case of scanning the pages and putting them on the internet. In this regard, digital archives are a victim of their own success; the best are so simple to use that they look equally simple to put together. Yet behind each digital newspaper archive is a mammoth project involving a wide variety of decisions and conundrums to preserve the world’s greatest stories.
Don't miss out on this up close and personal webinar with one of Gale's upcoming digital collections, Creating the Daily Mail Historical Archive, presented by Seth Cayley.
When: Tuesday, April 16
Time: 1:00 p.m. ET / 10:00 a.m. PT
What will be covered
Seth Cayley will bring to light the history of this digital edition, the transformations that have taken place to the content and show you the romanticism and importance behind rescuing the thoughts, words and deeds of past generations from crumbling to dust.
