CRL Report on Stockholm Workshop

The Center for Research Libraries (CRL) has just released the conference outcomes from Stockholm. The report and outcomes posted on the event page recaps the discussion from the  productive meeting, and sets out what priorities CRL will pursue as part of our ongoing "news agenda."

You can also download the event documents (news digitization analysis, repository assessment scheme). CRL is interested in additional community input on all of the above.

As the report suggests, CRL will pursue further exposure of metadata through ICON and will work to disclose information on the platforms, repositories, and relevant practices relating to newspaper digitization from institutions such as yours. CRL are developing an operational plan to accomplish these aims, and welcome statements of interest in both metadata sharing and repository assessment.
