Abstract: The Caribbean Newspaper Imaging Project was a series of demonstration projects, both funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the University of Florida Libraries. These projects occurred as two distinct phases: Phase One: Imaging and Indexing Model. A feasibility studies for imaging and indexing. The imaging study examined the efficacy of digitizing microfilms produced in advance of current preservation microfilming standards. It also examined the use of off-the-shelf microfilm-projection scanning, as well as associated costs, benefits and drawbacks. The indexing study examined indexing procedures, application of controlled terminology, and the costs associated with multi-lingual term assignments by human readers. Phase Two: OCR Gateway to Indexing. A feasibility study on the application of Optical Character Recognition (OCR). In its current state, the Project is undergoing technological renovation, that is migration from CD-ROM to Internet delivery. At the same time, the Project is developing plans for additional content.
