Newspapers Digital Library

The primary goal of the Newspapers Digital Library is to preserve news for its historical value for generations to come. This initiative also plans to be a single point of access to the over 20,000 newspapers worldwide. With most of the current newspapers being born digital, the digitization challenge is more or less solved. The key challenge will be to convince the publishers to share the information with the DOI. The plan is for the DOI to perform the search and retrieval with the web traffic being directed to the actual publisher. The publisher can then potentially derive economic value from the web traffic. It is expected that this initiative will expand the reach and longevity of small scale publishers.
