National Digital Newspaper Program: presentation summary

The August/September 2006 issue (PDF) of the Bulletin of the Information Technology Division/SLA contains a summary of the June conference presentation "One Million Pages a Year and More: the National Digital Newspaper Program." (The NDNP is anticipated to be a 20-year program.) The presentation was given by people from the Library of Congress and the University of Kentucky. UK is one of the six institutions awarded grants to become part of the first phase of NDNP.

Personally, I enjoyed hearing updated on project/programs like these, because I know that they are learning things that the rest of us could benefit from. And when I can't attend live, I like reading about the presentations, even if it is several months after the fact.
