Lois J. Widmer, Laurie N. Taylor, Mark V. Sullivan
This paper serves as a case study of how born digital ingest workflows can support newspaper preservation and online access with the Florida Digital Newspaper Library (FDNL) and Caribbean Newspaper Digital Library (CNDL) as examples. FDNL and CNDL were two of the first digital newspaper libraries to move to born digital ingest (UC Riverside, 2011; Zarndt, 2011). The paper addresses born digital workflows, selection and collection criteria, and digital preservation for contemporary
newspapers. The paper explains new problems faced by large digital libraries with current newspapers and new solutions.
