Conference Proceeding: The American Jewish Newspaper Digitization Project

The objective of the American Jewish Newspaper project is to build “The Jewish Press in the USA” section, hosted by JPress, in collaboration with the National Library of Israel, Tel Aviv University, the MaRLI (Manhattan Research Library Initiative) partners (N.Y.U., Columbia University, New York Public Library), and additional partners. This presentation will talk about the genesis of the project and address how it was conceived. It will cover what was learned along the way, in terms of logistics, but will also explore the question: how can a number of institutions with very different cultures and resources available to them collaborate successfully? The presentation will conclude highlighting a number of planned “future developments.”
