Bob Jones Indochina Collection of rare newspapers and serials

Carteles

The Florida International University Libraries seek to digitize twenty-nine issues of Carteles, an important Cuban magazine published 1919-1960. The digitized issues will be added to holdings already present in the Digital Library of the Caribbean’s Celebrating Cuba! Subsection.

Digitizing Peru's Print Revolution

This project proposes the digitization of an initial corpus of rare nineteenth-century Peruvian serials, ephemeral circulars, and popular song and verse imprints held in the José E. Durand Peruvian History Collection at the University of Notre Dame’s Hesburgh Libraries. These unique materials support new scholarship on diverse political and cultural topics in Peruvian history. They also offer new insights on the worldwide nineteenth-century revolution in print culture, providing fodder for comparative work by scholars across disciplines. The materials included in this first corpus date to the first half of the nineteenth century. They will be digitized and enhanced with OCR. They will then be slated for incorporation into the Libraries’ repository that allows users to...

Rare Odia Serials at the Utkal Sahitya Samaj

This is a proposal to digitize six regional Odia language serials from the early twentieth century, held by the Utkal Sahitya Samaj (USS) in Cuttack: Baikuntha Bhikari, Puribasi, The Ratnakar, Utkal Barta, The Swadesha Lakshmi, and The Light.
