Current Southeast Asia Newspapers

Except for Cornell and LC, very few members of SEAM subscribe to newspapers from Southeast Asia and rely mostly on Press Display, Factiva, etc or going directly to the websites of these titles.  This leaves US scholars without a basic historical record from the region.  This proposal will ease our budget, preserve and allow researchers to access newspapers.

 

This two year experiment whereby SEAM will pay and subscribe to newspaper titles from Southeast Asia through the Library of Congress Jakarta that will ship collated issues to CRL for microfilming using SEAM workflow.  All microfilmed copies can be accessed through CRL. 

The titles include:  Indonesia (Jakarta Post, Kompas); Malaysia (New Straits Times, Berita...

Mexican and Argentine presidential messages, 1821-1993

Proposal to convert and upgrade the digital collection of Mexican and Argentine presidential speeches from the 19th century orginially scanned by the Latin Americanist Research Resources Project (LARRP).

In 2000, LARRP converted over 75,000 frames of microfilmed Spanish-language government documents to digital format. The material was originally microfilmed by the Library of Congress (Argentina) and LAMP (Mexico) on LARRP's behalf. The converted materials were hosted by LANIC at the University of Texas at Austin as GIF files, with larger TIFF files available for downloading.

We propose to harvest the TIFF images from LANIC/Texas (with permission) and to re-process the files to capture full text  (OCR) and related metadata.
