Digitisation has been a hot topic in newspaper librarianship for some years now; it came as a godsend for many bulky and space-consuming collections. The major part of this volume comprises the papers given at the international conference on newspaper digitisation held at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City (May 2006) and presents the state of the art, including experiences from current British and North American projects. This material is complemented by presentations from the World Library and Information Congress in Seoul (August 2006), focusing on the East Asian Newspaper situation.
"This is a work that will greatly appeal to information specialists from an array of cultural backgrounds eager for material on recent develeopments in an important field."James Paull in: Library Management Nr. 29/1+2, 2008
