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.
