Europeana Newspapers Project Information Day

As the Europeana Newspapers Project is slowly but surely coming to a close, the Austrian National Library will be hosting an Information Day presenting some of the project’s outcomes, especially highlighting the TEL Content Browser. The event is free of charge and will open its doors at 9 a.m. on October 16, 2014.

What can you expect? The scope of the Information Day is practice-oriented and structured around the central theme: ‘The digitized, historical newspaper as a source’. We will provide a profound overview of how this medium can be utilized in different fields. Technical aspects of newspaper digitization will be covered as well as how the accessibility of this source aids the search for answers to historical questions. Other topics include the relationship between digital humanities and newspaper digitization and the integration of historical newspapers into school teaching. Finally, all of the questions that arise during the Information Day can be discussed with experts in a more practical-oriented Q&A session.
