Free Webinar: Avoiding the Pitfalls of Newspaper Digitization

I received an e-mail notice of this event, which I'm pasting below. I'm sure the webinar will have a "sales spin" to it, but I also think that it could be useful for those who are thinking about digitizing newspapers since it may surface ideas, etc., that you have not considered (or reinforce/confirm things for you).

Apex Publishing is pleased to invite
you to attend our free webinar
