Newspapers: “Dig Into History: Search the More Than 140 Years of Yale Daily News Now Online”
From the Yale Library:
The library’s digital archive of Yale Daily News (YDN)—the nation’s oldest continuously published college daily—has expanded to include 3,306 more issues than it had just two years ago.
There are now approximately 23,929 issues of YDN available in digital format—including occasional special issues and supplements—that users can search, view, and download in PDF format. Search the YDN Historical Archive.
This recent phase of work required digitizing the older print issues in the library’s collection. It also required processing YDN’s PDF versions of more recent issues to adapt them for the site.
Due to the scale of the project, Northeast Document Conservation Center in Andover, Massachusetts, converted the 1,778 print issues. Library staff prepared the 1,528 PDFs, which were then processed by the team at Veridian—the host for the archive’s new digital platform—and added to the database.
