The abstract notes:
The Library adopted and extended the methodology developed by the Utah Digital Newspapers Project. In two significant departures from the Utah approach the Library used contractor-supplied workflow-processing software that enabled the segmentation and metadata markup of the newspaper articles to be done locally, in Barrow. The Library also used Greenstone, an open-source digital library software suite rather than a commercial product, to publish the newspaper on the Internet.The project estimates that its per page cost was approximately $1.70/page. However, that figure does not include overhead costs such as administration, IT, and benefits, or time per day not spent on the project.
