East View Information Services Forms Alliance with the Center for Research Libraries to Digitize and Make Available 4.5 Million Pages of Newspaper Content

Minneapolis, MN USA— East View Information Services is pleased to announce a groundbreaking alliance with the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) to digitize and make available 4.5 million pages of international newspaper content. This initiative, part of the East View Global Press Archive® program, will deliver 1.5 million pages of content for all CRL member institutions and participating institutions, in addition to 3 million pages to be available in Open Access.

 

Specific titles will be determined by a CRL Advisory Committee, which will prioritize regional and thematic collections reflecting the needs of CRL membership. This is a revolutionary approach to library publishing in its scope and approach, its contribution to Digital Humanities, and in its emphasis on Open Access aspects.

 

Content will be selected from CRL and CRL member holdings, notably including the vast collection of key international titles from the Hoover Institution now held by Stanford University Libraries. These titles, collected from over 125 countries, will transform academic research, providing researchers with a reflection of the events of the 19th and 20th centuries that is unprecedented in its geographic, political, and linguistic diversity.

 

CRL and several of its member libraries are generously making possible the release of 3 million pages of this content as Open Access. All content in the program is to be presented in full-image and full-text format and will also be available to CRL members through digital archival copies delivered to CRL for long-term preservation. East View and CRL will produce several Area Studies collections, bringing research value to multiple areas of study.

 

“We are privileged to work with CRL on this groundbreaking initiative.” says Kent Lee, Founder and CEO of East View Companies. “From its founding, East View has focused on supporting academic research with global content in vernacular languages. This initiative extends East View’s mission to bring ‘Uncommon Information from Extraordinary Places’ to academic research.”

 

“This cooperative venture of East View and CRL will enable digital access to a vast trove of world news, curated by area specialists at CRL libraries and policy researchers at the Hoover Institution, one of the world’s premier think tanks,” says CRL president Bernard Reilly.
