National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910II2.SummaryThis project will digitize (image, convert to text, and mark-up) and make available to theNational Digital Newspaper Project,based at the Library of Congress, approximately 50 Florida newspaper titles. These titles, dating from between 1900 and 1910, represent allofFlorida's major geographic regions and localities including county seats, other major cities and selected smaller municipalities. The project targets 120,000 newspaper pagesinapproximately 60,000 framesofmicrofilm on approximately 200 reels. Target preservation microfilms will be second generation, silver negative print-masters generated from stored first-generation silver negative camera masters. Camera masters were created to preservation standard during theU.S. Newspaper Project: Florida(USNP:FL) grants by the UniversityofFlorida's Preservation Department. Digitization is to Library of Congress specification for the project. All digital images will be 400 dpi 8-bit gray-scale. All text willbegenerated by Optical Character Recognition (OCR) with line formation and word boxes,incolumn-aware formation but without article segmentation. As required by specification, text shallbedelivered as OCRed, without human correction. Structural metadata shallbespecific to page level and shall provide information specific to the page, issue (i.e.,enumerationandchronology),specific edition (if more than one was published) and title sufficient to support calendar-based browsing. Bibliographic information, created as a USNP:FL product, will also be delivered, and provide geographic references and other information to facilitate discovery. Technical metadata, also specific to the page, shall be specific to the requirementsofdigital asset management as outlined by the Library of Congress, with specific technical information extracted from the TIF file header. Deliverables will include: (a) digital master (TIF 6.0, uncompressed, 8-bit gray); (b) derivative JPEG2000; (c) derivative PDF with hidden text; (d) Text file associated with bounding word boxes; (e) structural metadata; and(f)technical metadata;aswell as (g) second-generation silver negative print master newspaper microfilm reels: the same as targeted for digitization. Principle activities include: selection for digitization; vended digitization and OCR text conversion; and inspection and shipment of deliverables to the Library of Congress. Ancillary activities include but are not limited to tracking measures; descriptive tasks (e.g., title scope, history & significance essays); and quality control regimes for analog microfilms, digital images, text and text files, and metadata files.

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-19104.NarrativeII4.0 IntroductionThe UniversityofFlorida and its partners at the Libraries of the State University System of Florida (SUL), the Florida Center for Library Automation (FCLA), and the State Library and Archives of Florida (SLAF), propose to digitize (image, convert to text, and mark-up) and make available to theNational Digital Newspaper Project,based at the Library of Congress, approximately 50 Florida newspaper titles. These titles, dating from between 1900 and 1910, represent all of Florida's major geographic regions and localities includingcounty seats, other major cities and selected smaller municipalities. Rationale and specific methods are as follows.4.1History and scopeofthe project Florida: 1900-1910By the beginning of the twentieth century, Florida's population and per capita wealth were increasing rapidly. The potential of the "Sunshine State" appeared endless. Railroads connected Florida's major urban areas, signaling the emergenceofa vibrant modern society out of a tumultuous pioneer past. Wars of colonial succession, warsof"Indian Removal", and theWarBetween the States gave way to the development of agriculture, economic hubs, and tourist destinations. The rails brought farm hands from Georgia, Alabama and other southern states. They made the growth of in-land destinations possible. Northerners, carpet-baggers and industrialists came not only to exploit but to develop Florida. And, the railways they built to move Florida's produce to the great citiesofthe north brought tourists, on their return, ever further south. The rails, like the thread of a necklace, even dared to string together the pearls of Florida's Keys. Many visitors stayed on, and some moved onto landmadefrom drained swamps. Real estate developments quickly attracted buyers, and Florida was sold and resold. The history of Florida can notbetold without telling the story of its "Boom", the incredible spurt of growth that even today lends its name to chapters in state history texts. The Boom,inturn, was intimately linked with the story of Florida's newspapers, which helped create, promote and report the state's new identity as southern paradise and investors' haven. The Goza and Mickler Newspaper Collections (http://web.uflib.ufl.edu/spec/pkyonge/micgoz.html) illustrate the useofreportinginNorthern newspapers through 1885 to convey information about and the allure of Florida as though information, itself, wereanedible commodity. These text searchable collections, together with other textual resourcesinthe PALMM Collections (http://palmm.fcla.edul) reveal Florida history and Florida's relevance to the nation. Newspapers of 1900 through 1910 hold the history of a developing Florida and a developing nation that saw Florida as its playground, ate from its table, and invested heavily in its fortunes.Anelaborated Florida Timeline is availableaspartofthe PALMM Florida Heritage Collection (http://palmm.fc/a.edu/fh/outline/outline.html).

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910IIJournalisminFloridaNewspaper publishinginFlorida began under British rule. After leaving South Carolinain1783, William and John Wells published a Tory newspaper fromSt.Augustine before moving on to the Bahamas when Florida again came under Spanish rule the following year. Three (3) issues of The East-Florida Gazette survive. There is indirect evidence of a Spanish-language newspaper,EITelegrafo de las Floridas, having been published at FernandinainDecember 1817 and describedinthe Charleston Courier. Spain ceded East and West Florida to the United StatesinJuly of 1821. The Florida Gazette began publicationinSt. Augustine that same month, andTheFloridian began publicationinPensacolainAugust of that year. By 1830, Florida's total population was 34,730, and the two counties established by Andrew Jackson as provisional governor had become fifteen. Territorial newspapers promoted immigration and statehood. The standard source for information on early Florida newspapersisTerritorial Florida Journalism by James Owen Knauss (Deland: Florida State Historical Society, 1926; cf, http://purl.fcla.edu/ fcla/dIlUF00002254.jpg). Knauss estimated that at least forty-four newspapers were publishedinFlorida before the end of the territorial period and that about halfofthe 6,800 issues produced survived. TheUSNP:Flsurvey database createdinthe planning phase of the Florida Newspaper Project largely corroborates this estimate; thirty-eight records list holdings for newspapers publishedinFlorida before 1845. In 1845, the year of statehood, Florida's population totaled 66,000. The young state had its shareofpartisan newspapers, including Marianna's Florida Whig (1847) and The Whig Banner from Palatka (1846). By the time of theWarfor Southern Independence, the state's newspapers had become sharply political. Democratic papers like The Southern Confederacy from Jacksonville (1861) were countered (at least eventually) by Republican papers like The True Southerner from Tampa (1868). Jacksonville's Republican paper, the Florida Union (1864), continues today as The Florida Times-Union. During the war, at least one newspaper (theSt.Augustine Examiner) was taken over and published by Union forces. One Confederate newspaper became the state's first African-American title. Josiah Walls, who came to Floridain1864with the Third Infantry Regiment, United States Colored Troops, purchased The Cotton States from a former Union general after the war and publishedTheNewEra from Gainesvillein1873. Newspapers and their publishers then wentonto wield heavy influence on the political and social developments of Reconstruction. Our survey database has twenty-nine records for Civil War-era newspapers, forty-two for Reconstruction-era papers, and fifteen records for newspapers spanning both eras. The Gainesville Sun, this city's current daily, dates its history toTheGainesville Times (1876), a Democratic paper. Established byanactofthe state legislaturein1905, the University of Florida first held classes at its Gainesville campusonSeptember 26, 1906. The University News was the first school newspaper. Today The Independent Florida Alligator serves a populationinthe range of 40,000.

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910IIA line drawn across the Florida peninsula from the mouthofthe Suwannee River on the Gulf of Mexico to Daytona Beach creates a northern and southern division more eye-opening than the historical east-west partition. Two-thirds of the total population livedinthe northern section at the turn of the century; less than a fifthoftotal population is there at the close of the century. Newspapersinthe northern section tend to have been published continuouslyinstable communities for long periods; nineteenofthe twenty-five agricultural titles on our survey database are located there, and eighteen date from the nineteenth century.Of305 ethnic titles listed in the USNP:FL database, only seven are locatedinthe northern section. The diversityinFlorida's newspapersislargely attributable to population movements into the southern sectionofthe peninsula. Retirees and refugees have converged from numerous points, and there are newspapers serving a varietyofgroups and interests. For example, Almanber "is published monthly [at Boca Raton]inArabic and English," La Estrella de Nicaragua from Miami is "the Nicaraguan newspaper of America," The Florida Catholic is publishedinsix diocesan editions from its main officeinOrlando, the Hi-riser serves "the condominium communitiesofFort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, Boca Raton [and] Highland Beach," while the Kreyol Connection is "the first trilingual newspaper (Haitian Creole, French and English)inPalm Beach." A million and a half Floridians are of Hispanic origin, and 280 Spanish-language newspapers are listed on the survey database, all publishedinthe southern sectionofthe state and three dating from the last century. The Spanish-language La Gaceta, beguninTampain1922, soon included an Italian-language section among its pages, recognizing fellow immigrants proficientina language other than English. Fifty-two African-American titles have been identified, seventy-six military titles are listed, and forty titles represent the religious press. Tracing its history back over 100 years, the Florida Sentinel Bulletin publishes both print and online editions of its newspaper. Florida has several metropolitan dailies with national reputations, and nearly 900 weeklies are listedinthe USNP:FL database. About 375 newspapers are currently pUblishedinFlorida, where newspapers areanimportant medium for a multiplicityofmessages. Florida's landmark to the importanceofjournalismis,perhaps, the Poynter Institute (http://www.poynter.org!). Foundedin1975 by Nelson Poynter, chairman of theSf.Petersburg Times and its Washington affiliate, Congressional Quarterly, theInstitute was bequeathed his controlling stockinthe Times PUblishing Co.in1978. As a financially independent, nonprofit organization, the Poynter Institute is beholden to no interest except its own mission: to help journalists seek and achieve excellence. Today, the independence of newspaper media is closely guarded by thriving newspapers: among them the St. Petersburg Times, the Miami Herald and the Jacksonville Florida Times-Union, as wellassmaller independent newspapers, such as the Independent Florida Alligator and Almanber.Reported Significant Eventsofthe Decade, 1900-1910Between 1900 and 1910, Florida newspapers reported eventsoflocal, state and national importance.

PAGE 10

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910IIOfimportance within Florida, newspapers reportedonthe political careers of William Sherman Jennings (Governor, 1901-1905) and Napoleon Bonaparte Broward (State Representative, 1901; Health Commissioner, 1901-1904; Governor, 1905-1919; U.S. Senator, 1910). The growth and general healthofagriculture was a popular topic. Newspapers specializinginagricultural news covered, among other events, the development of the Chase Company, a major shipper of Florida produce to northern markets. And, nearly every Florida newspaper carried Governor Broward's open letter to the citizens of Florida, which discussed prominently soil conditions and Florida's agricultural promise. By far the most important event of the decadeinFlorida History to be reported was the Great Fire of1901that destroyed Jacksonville. At the start of the Twentieth Century, Jacksonville was Florida's largest, most industrial and most vibrant city. Key West, Miami, Pensacola and Tampa were distant rivals. Located not far from the Georgia boarder, on the major north/south rail lines, and Florida's largest port, Jacksonville was, for many, the gateway to Florida. Manyofthe state's influential newspapersofthe decade 1900-1910 were publishedinJacksonville. So, its destruction shocked Florida and the nation. Jacksonville's reconstruction and the ascendancy of its rivals during this period are well documentedinthese newspapers. Frequently compared to the Great Fire that destroyed Chicago,perhaps the most interesting Chicago connection is a young Frank Lloyd Wright. One of the architects of Jacksonville's reconstruction, Wright used the city to introduce a new sense of style that would later sweep the nationasthe Prairie School. Photo-journalism and illustration appearinginthe Jacksonville newspapers affords a "life-history" of the School's development. Framing the decade, disaster was again reportedinFlorida newspapers. In 1909, a hurricane came ashoreinthe Florida Panhandleinthe Apalachicola Estuary, near Tallahassee. It had devastating force and cut a northwesterly path, following the main road to Pensacola. No part of the Panhandle was left untouched. Just as this year, 2004, the storm was one of four to dig into Florida. Hurricane reporting or, rather, the reporting on the aftermath of hurricanes was major business among Florida newspapers. The most destructive southerly storm was the 1906 hurricane that deeply scarred Key West, ripped into Miami, and nearly wiped cities like Boca Raton and Palm Beachfrom the map. Unlike the Great Fire, little can be saidofthe constructive forces that followed. Floridians simply survived; it was the lure of paradise that sparked rebirth. Today, yesterday's weather news is importantinmodeling the behaviors of present-day storms. This information has enduring economic value to Florida. In addition to carrying train schedules, Florida newspapers reported on rail transportation; the linking of Key West with New York via theEast Florida Railway was a major feat of U.S. civil engineering. Between 1905 and 1909, they reported as well on what was considered a marvel of human engineering, the drainage of the Everglades. This news was punctuated by news of the "greatestofhuman achievements," 1906's progress toward completion of the Panama Canal (cf, Pensacola Journal (February1,1906) http://purl.fcla.edu/fcla/tc/fhp/SNWF000005). The Canal would revitalize Florida's shipping industry and cruising, itself, would become both an industry and a destination. Other engineering news carried reports of the Pensacola Harbor Defense Project. Development news reported on, among

PAGE 11

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910IIothers, SamuelA.Swann, ArthurT.Williams, and Fred W. Hoyt, who's Fernandina Dock & Realty Company was a model of land speculation and development. Florida reporters documented the birth of the Florida Historical Societyin1902 and its incorporationin1905. The Society, with its inventories of Florida newspapers and library newspaper holdings, would herald the U.S. Newspaper Project more than 60 years before the National Endowment for the Humanities launched the project, and starting almost two decades before the Library of Congress and the UniversityofFlorida began microfilming their newspaper collections for preservation. The local news reported the every-day livesofFloridians, for example: meetings of the Melrose Women's Society; developmentofreligious and utopian communitiesinFlorida's far away places; the destruction of Jacksonville by catastrophic fire; and the tremendous growth of Tampa. Across Florida, growth spurred developmentofthe middle and professional class; newspapers frequently report the opening of new offices and the development and expansion of banks. Education experienced tremendous growth; reports of the establishment of new schools, construction of new classrooms, and the expansion of higher education were frequent. Perhaps most important to the people of Florida, the news-likeamber-preserved genealogical information. But, even local news would foretell national events. The decade's newsofthe State Temperance League, for example, telegraphed the rhetoric of Prohibition, though much of the rest of the nation was becoming more "Progressive". And, Pensacola's Building News (http://purl.fcla.edu/fcla/tc/fhp/SNWF000007) would herald a land boom across the state that would have effects, some devastating, on the U.S. economy and stock market less than two decades later. The exuberance of speculation, it seems, had become a fact-on-the-ground. Florida newspapers, of course, carried all of the major news of the nation and the world. With articles copied from the newspapers of Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, as well as London, tourists could keep up with the cold, hard facts of life at home while enjoying warm breezes on Florida's sunny shores. But, of particular importance to Florida among national news, these events: the Foraker Act of 1900, confirming that Puerto Rico was a U.S. Territory; the assassinationin1901 of President McKinley and Teddy Roosevelt's swearinginRoosevelt's foreign adventures were of keen interest to Floridians; even reports of the Newlands Restoration Actin1902, which authorized water projects across the West, was understood to point to the possibilities of Everglades drainage and development. (See also: PALMM Reclaiming the Everglades: http://evergladesJiu.edulreclaim/ or http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/award98/fmuhtml/everhome.html). Fort Meyers' most famous part-time citizen grabbed headlines brieflyin1903, as his eleven-minute feature film, The Great Train Robbery, enjoyed its fifteen minutes of fame. In international affairs, the Platt Amendment and its attendant withdrawaloftroops from Cubain1902, Panamanian independencein1903, the addition of the "Roosevelt Corollary" to the Monroe Doctrinein1904, the opening of the Panama Canal in 1906, and the Nicaraguan revolution of 1909 were followed closelyinFlorida. The events marked Florida's growing importanceinU.S. foreign policy.

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910IIFlorida's Newspaper Collections: Paper&MicrofilmThe P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History (http://web.uflib.ufl.edu/spec/pkyonge/ newspap.html) at the UniversityofFlorida, holds the largest collectionofnewspapers in the state and the stateofFlorida's only collection of newspapers on preservation microfilm. Collection and preservation efforts begun in 1944 called for acquisitionofat least one newspaper from eachofFlorida's 67 counties on an ongoing basis. The library began to produce in-house microfilm copiesofits Florida newspapers in 1947 and films 64 current Florida newspapers (http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/flnews/queue.html) on a regular basis today. Additional microfilmofcurrent and back runs is purchased from commercial microform publishers, and retrospective microfilming is undertaken in-house whenever possible. The Florida newspaper microfilm collection now holds more than 10,000 reels, all preservedonpolyester-based, silver-negative 35 mm microfilms stored remotely in two generations under ANSI standard conditions. Other major print collections in the northern and western partsofthe state are at the State Library in Tallahassee, reporting 454 titles; the Robert Manning Strozier Library at Florida State University in Tallahassee, reporting 286 titles; and the JohnC.Pace Library at the UniversityofWest FloridainPensacola, reporting 293 titles. These collections largely overlap and complement holdings at the UniversityofFlorida. Two major print collections in the southern partofthe state are at the UniversityofMiami's OttoG.Richter Library, a reported 324 titles; and the UniversityofSouth Florida's Tampa Campus Library, reporting 112 titles. Most of the unique titles at the UniversityofMiami constitute its Cuban Exile Collection, dating from the 1960s. Other newspaper print collectionsofnoteinFlorida are held by Miami-Dade Public Libraries, reporting71titles; the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society, reporting 88 titles; the Florida Historical SocietyinTampa, reporting 58 titles; Hillsborough County Public Library in Tampa, reporting 59 titles; Orange County LibraryinOrlando, reporting 62 titles; Orange County MuseuminOrlando, reporting 46 titles; St. Augustine Historical Society, reporting 46 titles.Ofthe more than 2,000 titles listed in the USNP:FL database, nearly half are held by the UniversityofFlorida. Allofthe preservation microfilm listed for the period 1900 1910 (cf, Appendix A) is held by the UniversityofFlorida.(For more information on the USNP:FL project, see its web pages at http:// www.uflib.ufl.edu/flnewsl.Appendix A lists titles published between 1900-1910 on preservation microfilm.)Prior Cataloging EffortNewspapers catalogedinthe USNP:FL projects were cataloged to guidelines specified inThe Newspaper Cataloging Manual,CONSER/USNP Edition, in OCLC and local and state catalogs, as well as in a database maintained by the USNP:FL program at the UniversityofFlorida. Online records described the detailsofthe preservation microfilms created by the project in addition to the characteristicsofthe source newspapers. Holdings records, i.e., Union List recordsinOCLC and MARC Holdings records in local and state cataloging, were also created specific to preservation

PAGE 13

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910IImicrofilm holdings. University of Florida Libraries' Catalog Department serials catalogers continue to maintain these records and to update them with new holdings and title changes.Prior Preservation Microfilming EffortPreservation microfilms listed by the USNP:FL project were those held primarily by the UniversityofFlorida. With'few exceptions, each of these titles hadbeen filmedinthe course of the University's on-going newspaper preservation microfilming program prior to the USNP. Active since the 1930's, shortly after the first commercial application of microfilm, and experiencing tremendous growth after WorldWarII,the University's microfilming program has grown into one of the largestinthe nation. The program began microfilming Florida newspapersin1947. Today, the program annually films more than 90 Florida, Caribbean and Latin American, African, and Russian newspapers, as well as several thousand monographs,inmore than 600,000 exposures, nearly 400,000 of which are created in-house annually. More than half, 59,ofthe titlesinthiscontinuingprogram are Florida newspapers. The program has filmed to preservation standard since 1987 when the University's Preservation Department was established. Filming practice adheres to guidelines put forthintheRLG Preservation Microfilming Handbook(Nancy Elkington, editor. Mountain View,CA:RLG, 1992) and all pertinent AIIM, ANSI and ISO standards for media, imaging and processing, and enclosures. The following description applies to preservation microfilm created from 1987 through today. Every step in this program is completed by the Libraries' staff to standard and under sanitary conditions. Filming is completed in-house using two Kodak MRD-2 cameras and raw 35 mm polyester filmasspecified by the RLGHandbook.Imaged film is processed daily by the Libraries'Analog Imaging staff. And, methylene blue tests, required by theHandbook,are performed independently by the Jane Group (Tampa, FL). The camera master is returned to the Libraries for frame by frame inspection, editing, reshoots and splicingasnecessary. The Libraries' inspection is completed using a light board outfitted for inspectionofmicrofilm reels; microscope; densitometer calibrated with every use; skew meter; and ultrasonic welder for "archival splices." Camera masters are again inspected, this time on the light box with an eye-loop for evidenceofscratching. All reels are inspected by the vendor and processed onto reels with reel ties and into clam shell boxes which meet or exceed the specificationsofANSI and RLGHandbookguidelines. Inspected films are sent to Preservation Resources (Bethlehem, PA), which is responsible for the creation and testing of second-generation camera negatives under a second-generation film storage contract with the Libraries. After generating, inspecting and storing the second-generation film, Preservation Resources ships the camera master for archival storage to Iron Mountain/National Underground Storage (Boyers, PA)inseparate vaults contracted by the University for first-generation camera master negative storage. Both storage facilities meet or exceed ANSIIAIIM standards for climate conditions, film duplication, etc. Preservation Department andDigital Library Center staff inspects these facilities and scientifically-valid randomly-selected reels not less than every three years as recommended by U.S. Military Specification. This inspection routine is among the tightestinthe nation for preservation microfilms;

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910IIImany do not inspect stored films or reacted to adverse conditions of film storageorfilm degradation. All films,inall generations are logged into the Libraries' tracking systems, which also retains records of inspection, density, splices, etc. Today, there are more than 10,000 reelsofFlorida newspaper microfilms created under this program.Prior Digitization EffortNewspaper digitization is not newinthe state of Florida. The earliest, in-state effort was funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation from 1998 through 2001. This UniversityofFlorida project, the Caribbean Newspaper Imaging Project (CNIP: http://web.uflib.ufl.edu/digital/collections/cnip/eng/project.htm). sought to make workable low-cost methods using commercial market hardware and tools that any library could use. Though CNIP technology continues to function, it is now somewhat dated. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software available at the timeofthe project was found to be unsatisfactory. DigitizationofFlorida newspapers has been somewhat less organized until recently. Previous effort took place under the auspices of the PALMM Project (http://palmm.fcla.edu/).PALMM is the digital publishing project of the State University Libraries (SUL). The universities of Florida, North Florida, South Florida, West Florida each have digitized selected holdings of selected runs, the majority dating from before 1900. Effort, however, was restrained by the technical limitations of the scanning technology of the institutions, the delivery technology of the Florida Center for Library Automation (FCLA), and the display technologies of our PALMM's usersinK-12 education. (Cf, Appendix B for a list of digitized Florida newspapers.) Most institutions scanned from source documents from their special collections. The UniversityofFlorida, is the only PALMM partner with largely accessible microfilm collections and microfilm scanners(ct,Appendix C). The University of Florida was the only institution with sufficient budget to support commercial text conversion, but competing newspaper technologies and the lack of a viable delivery system prevented it from converting newspapers. Its recent purchase of Prime Recognition software and FCLA's recent adoption of Greenstone with iArchives' newspaper modifications (cf, Appendix C) made it possible to move forward. The most recent Florida newspaper digitization effort takes the form of the on-going Ephemeral Cities project. Funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services, 7200 newspaper pages are being digitized by Byte Managers and converted to searchable text by iArchives for the project (cf, Appendices B andD).These pages represent nearly the sum of extant newspapers for Gainesville, Key West and Tampa for the years 1900-1910. Digitization is generally within National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP/LC) specification, albeit bi-tonal. And, text conversion is more specifically targeted than required but can be repurposed to meet NDNP/LC specification. These newspapers will become available as part of a PALMM Florida Newspapers Collection, scheduled for launch by June 2005. Newspaper digitization takes place within a larger context. The State Library and Archives' Florida Memory (http://www.floridamemory.com) and the libraries of the State University System's Publication of Archival, Library and Museum Materials

Collaborative effort, marked by the birthofPALMM, is entering its fifth year. Florida's digital effort has now matured such that regional collaboration is beginning to take root. Central Florida Memory (http://centralfloridamemory.lib.ucf.edul) is an excellent example of Florida's rapidly growing digitization capacity. The two largest programs, the proponentsofthis proposal, are theFloridaCenter for Library Automation (FCLA) and the University of Florida's Digital Library Center (DLC). FCLA is a Title-1 Center of the State of Florida that is charged with providing library automation services to the State's universities. Its Digital Library Services Division (http://www.fcla.edu/dlini/dlinipg.html) administers the centralized technologies and services driving the PALMM Collections. Whereas FCLA administers digital content, the University of Florida's DLC builds digital library projects and digitizes content,asdo the other institutions contributing to PALMM Collections. The DLC, while a unitofthe University's Libraries, coordinates production and contracts with libraries, museums and other agencies across Florida and increasinglyinthe Caribbean."Inaddition, to its digitization services, the DLC also provides analog services. Its in house preservation microfilming program is the largestinthe southeastern United States. And, its Newspaper Microfilming program, described above, is allied with the U.S. Newspaper Program (USNP)inFlorida. The National Digital Newspaper Program: Florida is based at the University of Florida as a continuationofthe USNP also based here.4.2 Methodology and standards4.2.1 Selection for Digitization Selection.Advisory Board will select from among preservation microfilms, usingcriteria tobedetermined. An objectiveofselection will be to balance geography (both physical and demographic) with a reporting of events of major significance and topical importance in Florida history. Selection shall also favor titles on microfilm that are complete or relatively complete per known extant print copy. Reduction ratio shall also be factored, with preference for microfilms imaged at 20xorlower. (N.B. This data existsincatalog records and microfilm image technical reports generated during filming. Its presentation to the Advisory Board required that the listinAppendix A be augmentedpriorto the initial selection meeting.) Qualityoforiginal text and microfilm capture, as assessed by DLC Analog Imaging (quality control) staff subsequent to initial selection, shall also be taken into effect. Preference will be given to titlesofhigher quality. Preference will also be shown to microfilms, as assessed by DLC Analog Imaging Unit (quality control) staff subsequent toinitialselection,withresolution test patterns readable at 5.0 or higher or comparable as estimated by the Units most experienced staff using the "Quality e" method. Cf, AppendixE,initial statement regarding theOLe.

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910II(The Advisory Board,outside the requirementsofNDNP,will also establish criteria for selection of microfilms of 1900-1910 not meeting preservation standard and a funding plan for this work. N.B.This work additional task isnotbudgeted for this project.)Records.Using the University of Florida's cataloging system, ExLibris/Aleph, Digital Library Center staffincollaboration with Catalog Department staff will compile CONSER/USNP compliant MARC21 catalog (and holdings) records into a database with UTF-8 character encoding for shipment to the NDNP at the Library of Congress. Essays. Also during the selection process, membersofthe Advisory Board who workinFlorida History Collection, together withOLCstaff, will complete the following essays: historyofFlorida's newspapers from 1900-1910"(1000 words); "[Title (placeofpublication)]:historyandsignificance"(250 words, including scope and contents notes) 4.2.2Tracking&PreparationforDigitizationDLC Copy ControllTracking Unit staff will initiate purchase orders for the generationofsecond-generation negatives from the first-generation camera master negative. The first-generation camera-master negative storage agency, Iron Mountain/National Underground Storage (Boyers, PA). This work will proceed under existing contract with the agency, awarded under State of Florida law. Second-generation negatives will comply, under contract terms, with the requirement of theRLG Preservation Microfilming Handbook(Nancy Elkington, editor. Mountain View, CA : RLG, 1992), and initial inspection will occur at the storage agency by its staff. Second-generation negatives willbeshipped to the DLe, and its Analog Imaging (quality control) staff will then perform a secondary inspection, completing a microfilm technical inspection report (MTIR) which will thenbelogged into the DLC Tracking database (for subsequent reports to the digitization vendor, DLC Quality Control Unit staff, and to the NDNP at the Library of Congress. This inspection shall be compliant with routines publishedintheHandbook,and shall note background density and other information as recommended. Cf,the Work Plan below for additional detail;wehave devised confidence testing methods using control sets.4.2.3Digitization&TextConversionMicrofilm frames will be imaged, rotated as necessary into right reading orientation, split into individual pagesasnecessary, assigned sequential file names with associated structural metadata supplying printed section/page numbers. Specifications for this process follow:

PAGE 17

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910IIImaging.Grayscale (a-bit) imaging at 400 dpi from second-generation negative preservation microfilm. Hardware usedreadsbackground density from the microfilm, using this information to establish an average light setting for high-speed conversion. Whenever possible, hardware will scan for blow-back to source page dimensions. (N.B. Thisisnotpossible onlyinrare cases,usuallywhen reduction ratio changes within a reeL) The vendor's software reads image background density and compensates for light imbalances and other similardefects not readily apparent during traditional preservation microfilm inspection. Software also deskews images (greater than30)and crops black edges in preparation for optical character recognition (OCR). Image out-put shall be uncompressed TIF (6.0), from which JPEG2000, PDF and text derivativesofthe same name shall be processed subsequently. There shall be one digital image per page with associated technical metadata (per NDNP LibraryofCongress specification will be compiled for each file). The vendor has been instructed to image standards-based target film strips at the startofeach reel and to supply these images with page images. Targets will include (but are subject to change pending instruction from the LibraryofCongress): RIT Alphanumeric Test Objectorcomparable equivalents: AIIM Scanner Test Chart #2 or IEEE Facsimile Test Chart, and Kodak grayscale targetora spatial frequency response target Microfilm targets shall be imaged in addition to pages. They will receive sequential file names consistent with their placement in the microfilm, but metadata shall mark them as extraneous data to the publication. Opticalcharacterrecognition(OCR), using multiple votingOCRengines, producing otherwise uncorrected text, with word-bounding boxes and zoned for column recognition, but without other segmentation. There shall be one text file with UTF-8 character encoding (and no graphic elements) per page and metadata shall reference the specific page image to which any given text file is associated. And, textincolumns shall be presented in natural reading order,column-by-column. As possible, the vendor shall also supply confidence level data at the character, word, line and/or page levels. PDF derivative, with hidden text and metadata referencing the source publication, date and page number, shall be generated at this point. Bounding box data supplied by iArchives are defined by pixel coordinate referencing (with in association with the digital master at 100%) for the upper right (x and y) and lower left corners (x and y)ofthe word box, expressed as parenthetical expressions. It is within both the vendor and the DLC's capability to adopt alternate bounding box expressions as required by the NDNP at the LibraryofCongress.

PAGE 18

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910II Metadata. Structural Metadata, for each image, shall be provided for titles, editions, issues (enumeration and chronology/date), sections, and pages, but no lower level (e.g., article, by-line, date-line, illustration, etc.) definition, as necessary to support a calendar-based browsing interface. Technical Metadata, for each image, shall be provided consistent inasmuch as possible with the mandatory requirementsofZ39.87-2002 (or later) : Data Dictionary for Technica/ Metadata for Digital Still Images, including information derived from the TIFF header (and tags requiredofLibraryofCongress contractors [http://memory.loc.gov/ ammem/prpsal/attach5.html]). Wepropose to ship information specific to the source microfilm bundled with this digital image technical metadata, compliant with the recommendationsofNISO Standards Committee AUlZ39.87 : Data Dictionary for Technical MetadataforDigital Still Images (of which the NDNP:FL Principal Investigator, Erich Kesse,isa committee member). However, it is within our ability to ship technical metadata relative sourcemicrofilm characteristics separately if requested by the LibraryofCongress. Administrative Metadata, for each image, shall document actions and responsibilities for the various processes applied by this project. Bibliographic Metadata, (expressed in associative structureofXML) for each image, will be providedina record structure as required by the LibraryofCongress(cf,Product Wrapping/Directory Structure, below; see also LibraryofCongress Technical Specifications at http://www.loc.gov/ndnp/ndnp_techguide.pdf). The product, including all by-products, shall be supplied to the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) at the LibraryofCongress.ProductWrappinglDirectoryStructure.All product (images, text, and metadata) shall be organized into a hierarchical directory structure sufficient for identification and differentiationofthe various product types. While the exact structure is to be negotiated with the NDNP at the LibraryofCongress, we propose the following. (Additional detail to be provided/negotiated following award.) Title Edition...(intervening bibliographic/publication hierarchy) Section Target Film Strip (as applicable) Page TIF" JP2" PDF" Text" Metadata (structural, technical, administrative)" *Files associated withanygiven page shall share the same file names.

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910II It is our preference to supply metadata with the image products (TIF, JPEG2000 and PDF with hidden text)inXML files. But, it is within our ability to provide them also or later, upon request,intab-delimited, MySQL, MS-SQL,orMSAccess formats. (It will be provided to the Florida Center for Library Automation (FCLA)inMXF (METS compliant XML) files.) (The University of Florida will also contribute the product to the PALMM Florida Newspapers Collection, for deployment within Florida and for queryincombination with resourcesinother PALMM Collections. This secondary use, which will support lower level definition, is viewed as providing a test-bed for an eventually expanded NDNP interfaceasit builds toward consensus on what the national historic newspaper mark-up (DTD: document type definition) should be. This product will also be shared with the Florida Electronic Library. N.B. These activities will be completed with state funds and are not budgeted for this project.) (The University of Florida and its PALMM partners also plan to contribute repurposed existing digital newspaper images(cf,AppendixB),on its own timetable, to the Library of Congress outside this NDNP project. N.B. This activity will be completed with state funds and are not budgeted for this project.)4.2.4QualityControlSee, Workflow, section 4.3.4, Quality Control. In accord with Library of Congress specifications for NDNP projects, we propose not cropping or other imagemodification during quality control. JPEG2000 images (.JP2) are derived at this point by DLC Quality Control application (cf, Appendix C), currently using the Adobe Photoshop implementation of the JPEG2000, Part 1 (or ISO-15444) standard. (N.B. Actual compression/quality, optimization, tile size, etc. can be set as instructed.)4.2.5 Delivery&DeploymentUsing the MARC records database compiled earlier, Systems Department DLC support staff will ensure association of records with structural metadata for images compiled throughout the processes described above.4.3Workplan Tex!Conversion&Oeployment 4.3.1 SelectionforDigitization4.3.1.1 Digital Library Center (DLC) staff prepares lists of newspapers on preservation microfilm; compiling detailed holdings; bibliographic information; brief historical information about individual titles, cities and countiesofpublication.

Ms. Schwartz will also liaison with Naomi Young, serials cataloger, Smathers Libraries' Catalog Departmentonbibliographic issues. Before assuming a "gate keeping" and data management roleinthe Digital Library Center, Nelda served as Reprographics Unit Headinthe Preservation Department and, earlier, managed its Brittle Books Program. She is a veteran of several large preservation microfilming projects, most recently the Baldwin Children's Literature project and the U.S. Agricultural Information Network: FL project.Ms.Schwartz will compile metadata, prepare project schedules, and process microfilm reproduction invoices. Mr. Canova will liaison with the microfilm storage and reproduction vendor, supervise second-generation microfilm quality control, and manage shipmentsofmicrofilm to thedigitization/text-conversion vendor. Mr. Canova manages analog reprographics and duplication services for the Digital Library Center, including its in-house microfilming and microfilm processing services. Quality Control review of control sets will be supervised by the Imaging Unit head,Randall Renner, and include his units section heads: Will Canova (analog imaging) and the incumbent digital imaging section head. Mr. Renner will also serve as primary liaison with the vendor for image quality issues. 4.4.3Digitization&TextConversionThe UniversityofFlorida is undergoing devolution from state government and its purchasing systems are currentlyinmigration to PeopleSoft systems. As a result, there was insufficient time to conclude a formal bid process. Selection

PAGE 26

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910 II of the imaging and text conversion vendor is based on response to blind RFI, pending formal bid. It is our intent, a requirement of state law, to complete this process and to award the project to the most competent bidder with the lowest price.+ RFPlbidisbased on specifications outlinedinMethodology,above. The University of Florida and a preliminary project discussion team elected to vend these services rather than to provide them in-house. Based on RFI pending formal bid, we elected the ByteManagers and iArchives partnership. This partnership currently provides similar newspaper conversion services for our IMLS-fundedEphemeral Citiesproject. The primary contractual partner will be ByteManagers which will subcontract text conversion to iArchives. Contractual relations will be with ByteManagers. Microfilm conversion willbethe responsibility of ByteManagers. Text conversion with bounding words will be the responsibilityofiArchives. Each partner will be responsible for metadata associated with their component. This relationship continues to work wellintheEphemeral Citiesproject.4.4.4 Quality ControlJane Pen and Gus Clifton, together with an incumbent to be hired for a currently vacant digital imaging position, will provide quality control. Jane Pen has managed the Digital Library Center's Quality Control Unit for more than two years, following a prior assignmentinthe Center's Imaging Unit. The Quality Control Unit will review images and associated metadata returned from the vendor to ensure product meeting specifications. She will be assisted by the incumbent digital imaging unit head, who will use the Center's Mekel 525GS microfilm scanner to create control sets(ct,4.3.2.4) from microfilms selected for digitization. Review is assisted by automation, programmed and maintained by the Center's twoprogrammers. Errors will be reported to Randall Renner, who will communicate with the Vendor for error correction. Gus Clifton has managed the Center's Text Conversion and Mark-up Unit for approximately one year, following a prior assignmentinthe Reprographics Unit, where he supervised newspaper microfilming. His Unit will review text and text-bound (i.e., PDF) products and associated metadata returned from the vendor. His Unit will use the Center's PrimeRecognition and other software to create control samples for comparison against returned product. Mr. Clifton will also serve as primary liaison with the vendor for text quality issues.4.4.5 Delivery&DeploymentDelivery and deployment activities, including final metadata and image packaging, willbethe responsibility of the Digital Library Center's programmer for data systems, Mark Sullivan.LuAi, Librarian with the Digital Library Services Division at the Florida Center for Library Automation, will provide + The UniversityofFlorida's Digital Library Center has had good relations and successful large projects with most of the vendors responding to our RFI.

Several titles are marked "digitized, not yet available". These are titles pending public releaseofFCLA's Greenstone application. All have been digitized to NDNP/LC specifications and converted to searchable text. They can be repurposed with slight modifications to NDNP/LC derivative format specifications. Title holdings fall both within and beyond the period, 1990-1910. The UniversityofFlorida and its PALMM partners (Le., the institutions holding the digital masters) propose to repurpose these holdings as funding becomes available outside the NDNP for delivery to the NDNP.

Funded by the IMLS Ephemeral Cities project, these are almost all of the available newspaper issues published between 1900-1910 for each city. Major titles include the Gainesville Sun and the Tampa Tribune. This small collection is completeinapproximately 7,200 pages. These titles, though digitized to NDNP specification, were digitized from the sole existing microfilm copies: commercial microfilms that wereinmany cases placed into use. Digital copy was created with techniques optimized to mitigate the effectsofboth use and imbalanced lighting; they represent best available copy.

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-19106.3AppendixCHardware&SoftwareforQualityControlInspectionIIComputer workstations Each with the capacity to perform quality control of images, text and to archive files. Each is relatively current, operating at speeds atorgreater than 2.2 GHz Pentium 4 processors or better many with dual processors; a minimum of 1 GB RAM, and 120 GB hard-drives, and Plextor CDIDVD writers. Most workstations run Windows XP (sp2), though some still run WindowsNT4.0. Their monitors are calibrated weeklyifnot more frequently. The (Image) Quality Control Unit currently operates 5 dedicated computer workstations. The Text Conversion and Mark-up Unit currently operates 5 dedicated computer workstations, with dual monitor configurations optimized for side-by side reviewofdigital page image and text. And, both Units routinely access to the workstations of the Digital Imaging Unit when they are not scheduled for production. The Digital Imaging Unit operates 15 computer workstations, many with dual monitor configurations. The Digital Imaging Unit also maintains a dedicated workstation for microfilm scanning, cf, Mekel 525 GS, below. Additionally, the Copy ControllTracking Unit operates 4 dedicated computer workstations and has access to the workstations of the Analog Imaging Unit when they are not otherwise scheduled for use.Mekel 525GS Gray-scale Microfilm Scanner http://www.mekel.com/prod03.htm The Mekel 525GS is a robust, potentially high-speed gray-scale microfilm scanner, capable of 300dpi uncompressed-TIF out-put. N.B. Gray scale out-putisnative JPEG, which staff converts immediately to uncompressed TIF while the image remainsonscreen. (Rather than reopening the image after saved, this routine retains optimal as-scanned image qualities.) We do not propose to use thisunit for project production. In addition to the gray-scale issue, this unit runsinproduction mode only with considerable set up and difficulty. We propose to use the Mekel 525GS to image selected frames of microfilm reelsinorder to create control sets for vendor information and quality control. Control sets willbeused for a variety of purposes: To visually inspect second-generation negative microfilms produced for digitization from stored camera-master first-generation negative microfilms. The configuration of the Mekel 525GS is optimal for inspection of preservation microfilmasoutlined by RLG Preservation Microfilming Handbook (Mountain View, CA : Research Libraries Group, 1992 .

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910IIAppendixCHardware&SoftwareforQualityControlInspection(continued) Mekel 525GS Gray-scaleMicrofilmScanner(continued) To determine image imperfections not readily identified by standard microfilm inspection procedures. Digitization,inour experience, is an excellent means of identifying illumination imbalance and related issues that impact digital image quality. Imperfections will be noted on the report sent to the microfilm digitization vendor. Our vendors, ByteManagers and iArchives, operate microfilm digitization hardware with software controls that mitigate know illumination issues. To process page images, using our installationofthe PrimeRecognition (see, PrimeRecognition, below) and UF DLC Zoning application to pretest text conversion and mark-up. Pretests will set benchmarks for vendor text product quality. UF DLCTrackingDatabase The Tracking Databaseisthe OLCs work queue and product record database. It manages all aspects of each of our digital projects and will be usedinFlorida's National Digital Newspaper Project. The application stores datainMicrosoft SQL tables and its interface and behaviors are programmedinC# for the .NET framework, v1.1. In addition to collection data and queuing work, it also generates packing lists, statistical reports, etc. UF DLC QCApplication The Quality Control (QC) application is a locally programmed GUI that generated JPEG thumbnails and JPEG2000 derivatives and presents theminsequential order for inspection. (N.B. Actual JPEG2000 compression/quality, optimization, tile size, etc. can be set as instructed.) In addition to visual inspection, the application allows its user to attach or confirm structural metadata (bothphysical-e.g., page and section numbering andintellectual-e.g., chapter headings, article titles, etc.), to accept or decline images, and to perform basic image manipulation or correction (e.g., rotation, etc.) The application report rates of acceptance with and without correction and rates of decline together with detailed error findings. The DLC QC application will be used to review, accept or decline vendor image product.AdobePhotoShopCS Adobe PhotoShop CS is usedinconjunction with the OLC QC Application to perform basic manipulation and correction,aswell as to generate JPEG2000 derivative versions. Programming effort is currently underway to move away from Adobe PhotoShop toward open source software (likely either IrfanView or GIMP together with their JPEG2000 plug-ins).

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910Appendix CHardware&Software for QualityControlInspection(continued) II Adobe PhotoShop CS (continued) We hope to compile theOLCapplications suite for distribution to other digital library programs and hope that participantsinthe National Digital Newspaper Program might agree to alpha-testing,asa means of asserting a modicum of vendor independence that might,inturn, reduce costs. [N.B.This open source/alpha testing plan isnotbudgetedaspartofthis proposal.]UF OLC Zoning Application A locally programmed application, similar to PrimeZone, a plug-in application for PrimeRecognition optical character recognition (OCR) software. DLC Zoning improvesaccuracyby identifying columns and complex layout structures. N.B. PrimeRecognition has automatic zoning capability, but it is our general experience that the addition of Zoning control improves OCR out-put. One of outobjectives for this project is to determine the extent to which such a toolisnecessary and to review cost over increased accuracy. The UF DLC Zone applicationisbeing developed asanopen source application that can be given to other institutions. It will be alpha-tested by the University of Central Florida and the University of the Virgin IslandsinFY2004 2005. The applicationisdifferent from PrimeZoneinthat, like the UF DLC QC application, it allows the attachment of structural metadata to zones and can be usedinconcert with Prime Recognition to produce intelligent mark-up. PrimeRecognition PrimeRecognition (http://www.primerecognition.com) optical character recognition (OCR) software is run by the Digital Library Center on a dedicated server. The application is configured with PrimeOCR, PrimeView, and PrimeVerify, using six (6) voting OCR engines. We propose to use PrimeRecognition, together with the UF DLC Zoning application, to establish a control set of files for text conversion against which to bench-mark vendor text product. N.B. Our vendor, iArchives uses similar software with multiple OCR engines. Rather than voting and selecting the best fit, its OCR application provides alternate selections parenthetically following the best fit. In order to be compliant with Library of Congress specification for this project, we have instructed the vendor to set this feature off. RecordNow MAX RecordNow MAX is the CD/DVO burning application of choice by the Digital Library Center. It creates MD5 checksums prior to burn and verifies the burn against stored checksums to ensure accurate burn. All data (image, text, etc.) is burnt by the DLC to gold based media, whetherCOor DVD, using Plextor writers.

UF OLCFileSortApplication FileSort is theDlCapplication that again calculates the MD5 checksumoffiles archived to CD/DVD and stores it together with other file information (name, size, format, version, creation date, write method, media etc.) either extracted from the file header or supplied by the application's user. FileSort saves this informationinan independent MicrosoftSaldatabase, backed-up nightly. FileSort acts on stored information to queue and trigger archive maintenance: inspection and migration. And, it canbeused to assistinthe inspection process generating new MD5 checksums for long-stored CD/DVDs and comparing them to stored MD5s generated when the file was originally archived.FClAMXFClientor UFDlCinterface based on the client's DTD and controls The Florida Center for Library Automation (FCLA) MXF Client is a METS compatible file exchange format used to ship file/metadata packages between the Digital Library Center, where they are created, and FCLA where they are both deployed and, again, archived. In this project, we propose to use the Client or a new interface now being programmed by theDlCprogrammers for FCLA as a replacement to the MXF Client as a method of shipping packages between us. Packages shipped to FCLA will be reviewed for quality. (Copy will be archived there and another copy will be mounted in the plannedPAlMMFlorida Newspapers Collection, before being sent on to the Library of Congress for deploymentinthe National Digital Newspaper Project.)MicrosoftOfficeSuite The Microsoft Office 2003 suite will be used to generate Word reports, Access database records/tables, Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations as necessary.AdobeAcrobatExchangeProfessional Adobe Acrobat will be used to open and review the quality of vendor PDFs and their hidden text.

Newspapers are included as name and event rich information sources. The project requires that searchable text resources, including 7200 newspaper pages, be tagged with name authority, geographic and temporal keys as to support map interactions. Documents will be searchable both textually within text search systems, e.g., XPAT for monographs and serials and a modified Greenstone application for newspapers, and visually as geographic layers within a map interface, e.g., modified ESRI Map server applications.

The Collection serves the entire northeastern Florida region, with particular strengthinJacksonville history. The Collection and Mr. Neal's understanding of Jacksonville history are particularly important.Atthe start of the Twentieth Century, Jacksonville was Florida's largest, most industrial and most vibrant city. Key West, Miami, Pensacola and Tampa were distant rivals. Located not far from the Georgia boarder, on the major north/south rail lines, and Florida's largest port, Jacksonville was, for many, the gateway to Florida. Many of the state's influential newspapers of the decade 1900-1910 were publishedinJacksonville. The most important event of Jacksonville and, some would say,ofFlorida's history for this period was the Great Fire of 1901 that leveled the City. Jacksonville's reconstruction and the ascendancyofits rivalsiswell documentedinthese newspapers. Prior to becoming head of the Florida Collection, Mr. Neal was Project Librarian for the Jacksonville Public Library Digital Library Collection (DLC). The DLC (http://jpl.coj.neUDLCIDLC.html) is an effort to digitize the library's more notable holdings, including rare books, manuscripts, a sizeable postcard collection, photographs and other assorted items.

UK's IMLS-funded "Beyond the Shelf' (http://www.uky.edu/Libraries/BTSI) project reports having to use the Mekel "by hand". Mark Sullivan (Systems Dept./DLC applications) and Gus Clifton (DLC Text Conversion & Mark-up) program new METS/MXF metadata packaging applications. Application allows the aerial photography project to gain labor/cost saving efficiencies. The application also supports automated header inspection to determine compliance with imaging specifications. Application allows metadata wrappers to be constructed quickly and efficiently with minimal humanintervention. Application supports semi-automated quality control and structural metadata creation; and it builds TEl shell. It also generated reports on rejected images. Application buildsonPrimeRecognition output to automate table of contents creation and other tagging. Application implements GATE and ANNIE scripts for intelligenUsemantic name recognition. It speeds text quality control review and semi-automates name authority tagging and geographic referencing within texts.

Project will link archival, graphical, and print resources to interactive maps using a geographic information systemwith temporal layers, using highly detailed Sanborn maps. Erich Kesse delivers presentationsonthe project at WebWise 2004 (Chicago, IL) and SOLINET's annual membership meeting (Atlanta, GA) Mark Sullivan (Systems Dept./DLC applications) programs new METS compliant metadata tool for the project's "Community Days"(akindofantiques road show with digitization and preservation advice for artifacts broughtinby the community). FCLA suggests the tool might replace its MXF client, used by the other State University Libraries to package metadata. Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps of Florida Entered its second phase: georectification and indexingofstructures. Work on Gainesville, Key West and Tampa funded by the IMLS-funded Ephemeral Cities project. Work on Miami and Fort Lauderdale funded by the Southeast Florida Water Management District georectification only. Stephanie Haas initiated discussions with other water management districts to fund additional geo-rectification. Library Services and Technology Assistance (Florida program) awards the second phase of the Frem theAirproject (a.k.a., Aerial Photography: Florida) Project exceeds the target of 35,000 images by 13,230 within original budget. Availability generates tremendous interest and request for access to high resolution digital masters. StephanieHaas and Mark Sullivan respond for tens of thousands of images, most provided on a quid-pre-quo basis, exchanging images for additional geographic referencing information. Erich Kesse initiates discussions with a local donor to fund a JPEG2000 server that will deliver high resolution copies. St. Augustine Foundation funds East Florida Papers project.

The NEH-funded Baldwin Library cataloging and preservation project generated thousandsoftitles, only a quarterofwhich are currently available on-line. Hybrid method, combining color digitization from source integrated with microfilm digitization, proves cost-effective but more time-consuming than projected. Processing was halted pending UF DLC installationofPrimeRecognition optical character recognition (OCR) applicationofFCLA modificationofXPATsearch engine to accommodate its out-put. New method will make keyed/human entryoftableofcontents metadata obsolete. OCRwill make all text searchable, supporting literary and social studies. John Ingram (Director for Collections) and Rita Smith (Curator, Baldwin LibraryofHistorical Children's Literature) procure funding for continued digitization, albeit fUlly digital (abandoning the hybrid model). Linking Florida's Natural Heritageand other collections begin to repurpose page image resources using PrimeRecognition optical character recognition (OCR) applicationtoenhance search and access. Name authority is the nameofthe game. Preparations for migrationofRingling Collectionto RLG'sCultural Materialscollections and issues associated with name and place queries in theEphemeral Citiesproject make apparent the importanceofname authority.

National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):Florida Newspapers, 1900-19106.12 Appendix L tiThe SpiritofNewspaper Publishing in Florida"IeofTruth, on III Indeference to theDeFuniak Herald,circa 1914, we like to think that this subscription notice captures the independent, self-deferential spiritofboth Florida's news industry and its people. Florida's newspaper preservation microfilming effort retained the spirit. So much so, that Florida was oneofthe first states to begin microfilming but the last states in the U.S. Newspaper Program (USNP). By time Florida had joined the USNP, we Floridians had already microfilmed more than the lion's shareofour state's newspapers.Welike to think that this spirit continues withus,inour digitization program. But, we request you patronage and ask you to subscribe us to the National Digital Newspaper Program.

2. Summary
This project will digitize (image, convert to text, and mark-up) and make available to the
National Digital Newspaper Project, based at the Library of Congress, approximately 50
Florida newspaper titles. These titles, dating from between 1900 and 1910, represent all
of Florida's major geographic regions and localities including county seats, other major
cities and selected smaller municipalities.
The project targets 120,000 newspaper pages in approximately 60,000 frames of
microfilm on approximately 200 reels. Target preservation microfilms will be second-
generation, silver negative print-masters generated from stored first-generation silver
negative camera masters. Camera masters were created to preservation standard
during the U.S. Newspaper Project: Florida (USNP:FL) grants by the University of
Florida's Preservation Department.
Digitization is to Library of Congress specification for the project. All digital images will
be 400 dpi 8-bit gray-scale. All text will be generated by Optical Character Recognition
(OCR) with line formation and word boxes, in column-aware formation but without article
segmentation. As required by specification, text shall be delivered as OCRed, without
human correction. Structural metadata shall be specific to page level and shall provide
information specific to the page, issue (i.e., enumeration and chronology), specific
edition (if more than one was published) and title sufficient to support calendar-based
browsing. Bibliographic information, created as a USNP:FL product, will also be
delivered, and provide geographic references and other information to facilitate
discovery. Technical metadata, also specific to the page, shall be specific to the
requirements of digital asset management as outlined by the Library of Congress, with
specific technical information extracted from the TIF file header.
Deliverables will include: (a) digital master (TIF 6.0, uncompressed, 8-bit gray); (b)
derivative JPEG2000; (c) derivative PDF with hidden text; (d) Text file associated with
bounding word boxes; (e) structural metadata; and
(f) technical metadata; as well as (g) second-generation silver negative print master
newspaper microfilm reels: the same as targeted for digitization.
Principle activities include: selection for digitization; vended digitization and OCR text-
conversion; and inspection and shipment of deliverables to the Library of Congress.
Ancillary activities include but are not limited to tracking measures; descriptive tasks
(e.g., title scope, history & significance essays); and quality control regimes for analog
microfilms, digital images, text and text files, and metadata files.

4. Narrative

4.0 Introduction
The University of Florida and its partners at the Libraries of the State University
System of Florida (SUL), the Florida Center for Library Automation (FCLA), and the
State Library and Archives of Florida (SLAF), propose to digitize (image, convert to
text, and mark-up) and make available to the National Digital Newspaper Project,
based at the Library of Congress, approximately 50 Florida newspaper titles. These
titles, dating from between 1900 and 1910, represent all of Florida's major geographic
regions and localities including county seats, other major cities and selected smaller
municipalities. Rationale and specific methods are as follows.

4.1 History and scope of the project
Florida : 1900-1910
By the beginning of the twentieth century, Florida's population and per capita wealth
were increasing rapidly. The potential of the "Sunshine State" appeared endless.
Railroads connected Florida's major urban areas, signaling the emergence of a vibrant
modern society out of a tumultuous pioneer past. Wars of colonial succession, wars of
"Indian Removal", and the War Between the States gave way to the development of
agriculture, economic hubs, and tourist destinations. The rails brought farm hands
from Georgia, Alabama and other southern states. They made the growth of in-land
destinations possible. Northerners, carpet-baggers and industrialists came not only to
exploit but to develop Florida. And, the railways they built to move Florida's produce to
the great cities of the north brought tourists, on their return, ever further south. The
rails, like the thread of a necklace, even dared to string together the pearls of Florida's
Keys. Many visitors stayed on, and some moved onto land made from drained
swamps. Real estate developments quickly attracted buyers, and Florida was sold and
resold.
The history of Florida can not be told without telling the story of its "Boom", the
incredible spurt of growth that even today lends its name to chapters in state history
texts. The Boom, in turn, was intimately linked with the story of Florida's newspapers,
which helped create, promote and report the state's new identity as southern paradise
and investors' haven. The Goza and Mickler Newspaper Collections
(http://web.uflib.ufl.edu/spec/pkyonge/micgoz.html) illustrate the use of reporting in
Northern newspapers through 1885 to convey information about and the allure of
Florida as though information, itself, were an edible commodity. These text-
searchable collections, together with other textual resources in the PALMM Collections
(http://palmm.fcla.edu/) reveal Florida history and Florida's relevance to the nation.
Newspapers of 1900 through 1910 hold the history of a developing Florida and a
developing nation that saw Florida as its playground, ate from its table, and invested
heavily in its fortunes.
An elaborated Florida Timeline is available as part of the PALMM Florida Heritage
Collection (http://palmm.fcla.edu/fh/outline/outline.html).

Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910


Journalism in Florida
Newspaper publishing in Florida began under British rule. After leaving South Carolina
in 1783, William and John Wells published a Tory newspaper from St. Augustine
before moving on to the Bahamas when Florida again came under Spanish rule the
following year. Three (3) issues of The East-Florida Gazette survive. There is indirect
evidence of a Spanish-language newspaper, El Tel6grafo de las Floridas, having been
published at Fernandina in December 1817 and described in the Charleston Courier.
Spain ceded East and West Florida to the United States in July of 1821. The Florida
Gazette began publication in St. Augustine that same month, and The Floridian began
publication in Pensacola in August of that year. By 1830, Florida's total population was
34,730, and the two counties established by Andrew Jackson as provisional governor
had become fifteen.
Territorial newspapers promoted immigration and statehood. The standard source for
information on early Florida newspapers is Territorial Florida Journalism by James
Owen Knauss (DeLand: Florida State Historical Society, 1926; cf, http://purl.fcla.edu/
fcla/dl/UF00002254.jpg). Knauss estimated that at least forty-four newspapers were
published in Florida before the end of the territorial period and that about half of the
6,800 issues produced survived. The USNP:FL survey database created in the
planning phase of the Florida Newspaper Project largely corroborates this estimate;
thirty-eight records list holdings for newspapers published in Florida before 1845.
In 1845, the year of statehood, Florida's population totaled 66,000. The young state
had its share of partisan newspapers, including Marianna's Florida Whig (1847) and
The Whig Banner from Palatka (1846). By the time of the War for Southern
Independence, the state's newspapers had become sharply political. Democratic
papers like The Southern Confederacy from Jacksonville (1861) were countered (at
least eventually) by Republican papers like The True Southerner from Tampa (1868).
Jacksonville's Republican paper, the Florida Union (1864), continues today as The
Florida Times-Union.
During the war, at least one newspaper (the St. Augustine Examiner) was taken over
and published by Union forces. One Confederate newspaper became the state's first
African-American title. Josiah Walls, who came to Florida in 1864 with the Third
Infantry Regiment, United States Colored Troops, purchased The Cotton States from a
former Union general after the war and published The New Era from Gainesville in
1873.
Newspapers and their publishers then went on to wield heavy influence on the political
and social developments of Reconstruction. Our survey database has twenty-nine
records for Civil War-era newspapers, forty-two for Reconstruction-era papers, and
fifteen records for newspapers spanning both eras. The Gainesville Sun, this city's
current daily, dates its history to The Gainesville Times (1876), a Democratic paper.
Established by an act of the state legislature in 1905, the University of Florida first held
classes at its Gainesville campus on September 26, 1906. The University News was
the first school newspaper. Today The Independent Florida Alligator serves a
population in the range of 40,000.







National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):
Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910

A line drawn across the Florida peninsula from the mouth of the Suwannee River on
the Gulf of Mexico to Daytona Beach creates a northern and southern division more
eye-opening than the historical east-west partition. Two-thirds of the total population
lived in the northern section at the turn of the century; less than a fifth of total
population is there at the close of the century. Newspapers in the northern section tend
to have been published continuously in stable communities for long periods; nineteen
of the twenty-five agricultural titles on our survey database are located there, and
eighteen date from the nineteenth century. Of 305 ethnic titles listed in the USNP:FL
database, only seven are located in the northern section.
The diversity in Florida's newspapers is largely attributable to population movements
into the southern section of the peninsula. Retirees and refugees have converged
from numerous points, and there are newspapers serving a variety of groups and
interests. For example, Almanber"is published monthly [at Boca Raton] in Arabic and
English," La Estrella de Nicaragua from Miami is "the Nicaraguan newspaper of
America," The Florida Catholic is published in six diocesan editions from its main office
in Orlando, the Hi-riserserves "the condominium communities of Fort Lauderdale,
Pompano Beach, Boca Raton [and] Highland Beach," while the Kreyol Connection is
"the first trilingual newspaper (Haitian Creole, French and English) in Palm Beach."
A million and a half Floridians are of Hispanic origin, and 280 Spanish-language
newspapers are listed on the survey database, all published in the southern section of
the state and three dating from the last century. The Spanish-language La Gaceta,
begun in Tampa in 1922, soon included an Italian-language section among its pages,
recognizing fellow immigrants proficient in a language other than English.
Fifty-two African-American titles have been identified, seventy-six military titles are
listed, and forty titles represent the religious press. Tracing its history back over 100
years, the Florida Sentinel Bulletin publishes both print and online editions of its
newspaper.
Florida has several metropolitan dailies with national reputations, and nearly 900
weeklies are listed in the USNP:FL database. About 375 newspapers are currently
published in Florida, where newspapers are an important medium for a multiplicity of
messages.
Florida's landmark to the importance of journalism is, perhaps, the Poynter Institute
(http://www.poynter.org/). Founded in 1975 by Nelson Poynter, chairman of the St.
Petersburg Times and its Washington affiliate, Congressional Quarterly, the Institute
was bequeathed his controlling stock in the Times Publishing Co. in 1978. As a
financially independent, nonprofit organization, the Poynter Institute is beholden to no
interest except its own mission: to help journalists seek and achieve excellence.
Today, the independence of newspaper media is closely guarded by thriving
newspapers: among them the St. Petersburg Times, the Miami Herald and the
Jacksonville Florida Times-Union, as well as smaller independent newspapers, such
as the Independent Florida Alligator and Almanber.

Reported Significant Events of the Decade, 1900-1910
Between 1900 and 1910, Florida newspapers reported events of local, state and
national importance.







National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):
Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910

Of importance within Florida, newspapers reported on the political careers of William
Sherman Jennings (Governor, 1901-1905) and Napoleon Bonaparte Broward (State
Representative, 1901; Health Commissioner, 1901-1904; Governor, 1905-1919; U.S.
Senator, 1910). The growth and general health of agriculture was a popular topic.
Newspapers specializing in agricultural news covered, among other events, the
development of the Chase Company, a major shipper of Florida produce to northern
markets. And, nearly every Florida newspaper carried Governor Broward's open letter
to the citizens of Florida, which discussed prominently soil conditions and Florida's
agricultural promise.
By far the most important event of the decade in Florida History to be reported was the
Great Fire of 1901 that destroyed Jacksonville. At the start of the Twentieth Century,
Jacksonville was Florida's largest, most industrial and most vibrant city. Key West,
Miami, Pensacola and Tampa were distant rivals. Located not far from the Georgia
boarder, on the major north/south rail lines, and Florida's largest port, Jacksonville
was, for many, the gateway to Florida. Many of the state's influential newspapers of
the decade 1900-1910 were published in Jacksonville. So, its destruction shocked
Florida and the nation. Jacksonville's reconstruction and the ascendancy of its rivals
during this period are well documented in these newspapers. Frequently compared to
the Great Fire that destroyed Chicago, perhaps the most interesting Chicago
connection is a young Frank Lloyd Wright. One of the architects of Jacksonville's
reconstruction, Wright used the city to introduce a new sense of style that would later
sweep the nation as the Prairie School. Photo-journalism and illustration appearing in
the Jacksonville newspapers affords a "life-history" of the School's development.
Framing the decade, disaster was again reported in Florida newspapers. In 1909, a
hurricane came ashore in the Florida Panhandle in the Apalachicola Estuary, near
Tallahassee. It had devastating force and cut a northwesterly path, following the main
road to Pensacola. No part of the Panhandle was left untouched. Just as this year,
2004, the storm was one of four to dig into Florida. Hurricane reporting or, rather, the
reporting on the aftermath of hurricanes was major business among Florida
newspapers. The most destructive southerly storm was the 1906 hurricane that
deeply scarred Key West, ripped into Miami, and nearly wiped cities like Boca Raton
and Palm Beach from the map. Unlike the Great Fire, little can be said of the
constructive forces that followed. Floridians simply survived; it was the lure of
paradise that sparked rebirth. Today, yesterday's weather news is important in
modeling the behaviors of present-day storms. This information has enduring
economic value to Florida.
In addition to carrying train schedules, Florida newspapers reported on rail
transportation; the linking of Key West with New York via the East Florida Railway was
a major feat of U.S. civil engineering. Between 1905 and 1909, they reported as well
on what was considered a marvel of human engineering, the drainage of the
Everglades. This news was punctuated by news of the "greatest of human
achievements," 1906's progress toward completion of the Panama Canal (cf,
Pensacola Journal (February 1, 1906) http://purl.fcla.edu/fcla/tc/fhp/SNWF000005).
The Canal would revitalize Florida's shipping industry and cruising, itself, would
become both an industry and a destination. Other engineering news carried reports of
the Pensacola Harbor Defense Project. Development news reported on, among







National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):
Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910

others, Samuel A. Swann, Arthur T. Williams, and Fred W. Hoyt, who's Fernandina
Dock & Realty Company was a model of land speculation and development.

Florida reporters documented the birth of the Florida Historical Society in 1902 and its
incorporation in 1905. The Society, with its inventories of Florida newspapers and
library newspaper holdings, would herald the U.S. Newspaper Project more than 60
years before the National Endowment for the Humanities launched the project, and
starting almost two decades before the Library of Congress and the University of
Florida began microfilming their newspaper collections for preservation.
The local news reported the every-day lives of Floridians, for example: meetings of the
Melrose Women's Society; development of religious and utopian communities in
Florida's far away places; the destruction of Jacksonville by catastrophic fire; and the
tremendous growth of Tampa. Across Florida, growth spurred development of the
middle and professional class; newspapers frequently report the opening of new
offices and the development and expansion of banks. Education experienced
tremendous growth; reports of the establishment of new schools, construction of new
classrooms, and the expansion of higher education were frequent. Perhaps most
important to the people of Florida, the news like amber- preserved genealogical
information. But, even local news would foretell national events. The decade's news
of the State Temperance League, for example, telegraphed the rhetoric of Prohibition,
though much of the rest of the nation was becoming more "Progressive". And,
Pensacola's Building News (http://purl.fcla.edu/fcla/tc/fhp/SNWF000007) would herald
a land boom across the state that would have effects, some devastating, on the U.S.
economy and stock market less than two decades later. The exuberance of
speculation, it seems, had become a fact-on-the-ground.
Florida newspapers, of course, carried all of the major news of the nation and the
world. With articles copied from the newspapers of Boston, Chicago, New York,
Philadelphia, and Washington, as well as London, tourists could keep up with the cold,
hard facts of life at home while enjoying warm breezes on Florida's sunny shores. But,
of particular importance to Florida among national news, these events: the Foraker Act
of 1900, confirming that Puerto Rico was a U.S. Territory; the assassination in 1901 of
President McKinley and Teddy Roosevelt's swearing in Roosevelt's foreign
adventures were of keen interest to Floridians; even reports of the Newlands
Restoration Act in 1902, which authorized water projects across the West, was
understood to point to the possibilities of Everglades drainage and development. (See
also: PALMM Reclaiming the Everglades: http://everglades.fiu.edu/reclaim/ or
http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/award98/fmuhtml/everhome.html). Fort Meyers' most
famous part-time citizen grabbed headlines briefly in 1903, as his eleven-minute
feature film, The Great Train Robbery, enjoyed its fifteen minutes of fame. In
international affairs, the Platt Amendment and its attendant withdrawal of troops from
Cuba in 1902, Panamanian independence in 1903, the addition of the "Roosevelt
Corollary" to the Monroe Doctrine in 1904, the opening of the Panama Canal in 1906,
and the Nicaraguan revolution of 1909 were followed closely in Florida. The events
marked Florida's growing importance in U.S. foreign policy.

Florida's Newspaper Collections: Paper & Microfilm
The P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History (http://web.uflib.ufl.edu/spec/pkyonge/
newspap.html) at the University of Florida, holds the largest collection of newspapers
in the state and the state of Florida's only collection of newspapers on preservation
microfilm. Collection and preservation efforts begun in 1944 called for acquisition of at
least one newspaper from each of Florida's 67 counties on an ongoing basis. The
library began to produce in-house microfilm copies of its Florida newspapers in 1947
and films 64 current Florida newspapers (http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/flnews/queue.html)
on a regular basis today. Additional microfilm of current and back runs is purchased
from commercial microform publishers, and retrospective microfilming is undertaken
in-house whenever possible. The Florida newspaper microfilm collection now holds
more than 10,000 reels, all preserved on polyester-based, silver-negative 35 mm
microfilms stored remotely in two generations under ANSI standard conditions.
Other major print collections in the northern and western parts of the state are at the
State Library in Tallahassee, reporting 454 titles; the Robert Manning Strozier Library
at Florida State University in Tallahassee, reporting 286 titles; and the John C. Pace
Library at the University of West Florida in Pensacola, reporting 293 titles. These
collections largely overlap and complement holdings at the University of Florida.
Two major print collections in the southern part of the state are at the University of
Miami's Otto G. Richter Library, a reported 324 titles; and the University of South
Florida's Tampa Campus Library, reporting 112 titles. Most of the unique titles at the
University of Miami constitute its Cuban Exile Collection, dating from the 1960s.
Other newspaper print collections of note in Florida are held by Miami-Dade Public
Libraries, reporting 71 titles; the Fort Lauderdale Historical Society, reporting 88 titles;
the Florida Historical Society in Tampa, reporting 58 titles; Hillsborough County Public
Library in Tampa, reporting 59 titles; Orange County Library in Orlando, reporting 62
titles; Orange County Museum in Orlando, reporting 46 titles; St. Augustine Historical
Society, reporting 46 titles.
Of the more than 2,000 titles listed in the USNP:FL database, nearly half are held by
the University of Florida. All of the preservation microfilm listed for the period 1900-
1910 (cf, Appendix A) is held by the University of Florida.

(For more information on the USNP:FL project, see its web pages at http://
www.uflib.ufl.edu/flnews/. Appendix A lists titles published between 1900-1910 on
preservation microfilm.)

Prior Cataloging Effort
Newspapers cataloged in the USNP:FL projects were cataloged to guidelines specified
in The Newspaper Cataloging Manual, CONSER/USNP Edition, in OCLC and local
and state catalogs, as well as in a database maintained by the USNP:FL program at
the University of Florida. Online records described the details of the preservation
microfilms created by the project in addition to the characteristics of the source
newspapers. Holdings records, i.e., Union List records in OCLC and MARC Holdings
records in local and state cataloging, were also created specific to preservation







National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):
Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910

microfilm holdings.

University of Florida Libraries' Catalog Department serials catalogers continue to
maintain these records and to update them with new holdings and title changes.

Prior Preservation Microfilming Effort
Preservation microfilms listed by the USNP:FL project were those held primarily by the
University of Florida. With-few exceptions, each of these titles had been filmed in the
course of the University's on-going newspaper preservation microfilming program prior
to the USNP. Active since the 1930's, shortly after the first commercial application of
microfilm, and experiencing tremendous growth after World War II, the University's
microfilming program has grown into one of the largest in the nation. The program
began microfilming Florida newspapers in 1947. Today, the program annually films
more than 90 Florida, Caribbean and Latin American, African, and Russian
newspapers, as well as several thousand monographs, in more than 600,000
exposures, nearly 400,000 of which are created in-house annually. More than half, 59,
of the titles in this continuing program are Florida newspapers.
The program has filmed to preservation standard since 1987 when the University's
Preservation Department was established. Filming practice adheres to guidelines put
forth in the RLG Preservation Microfilming Handbook (Nancy Elkington, editor.
Mountain View, CA: RLG, 1992) and all pertinent AIIM, ANSI and ISO standards for
media, imaging and processing, and enclosures. The following description applies to
preservation microfilm created from 1987 through today.
Every step in this program is completed by the Libraries' staff to standard and under
sanitary conditions. Filming is completed in-house using two Kodak MRD-2 cameras
and raw 35 mm polyester film as specified by the RLG Handbook. Imaged film is
processed daily by the Libraries' Analog Imaging staff. And, methylene blue tests,
required by the Handbook, are performed independently by the Jane Group (Tampa,
FL). The camera master is returned to the Libraries for frame by frame inspection,
editing, reshoots and splicing as necessary. The Libraries' inspection is completed
using a light board outfitted for inspection of microfilm reels; microscope; densitometer
calibrated with every use; skew meter; and ultrasonic welder for "archival splices."
Camera masters are again inspected, this time on the light box with an eye-loop for
evidence of scratching. All reels are inspected by the vendor and processed onto
reels with reel ties and into clam shell boxes which meet or exceed the specifications
of ANSI and RLG Handbook guidelines.
Inspected films are sent to Preservation Resources (Bethlehem, PA), which is
responsible for the creation and testing of second-generation camera negatives under
a second-generation film storage contract with the Libraries. After generating,
inspecting and storing the second-generation film, Preservation Resources ships the
camera master for archival storage to Iron Mountain/National Underground Storage
(Boyers, PA) in separate vaults contracted by the University for first-generation camera
master negative storage. Both storage facilities meet or exceed ANSI/AIIM standards
for climate conditions, film duplication, etc. Preservation Department and Digital
Library Center staff inspects these facilities and scientifically-valid randomly-selected
reels not less than every three years as recommended by U.S. Military Specification.
This inspection routine is among the tightest in the nation for preservation microfilms;







National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):
Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910

many do not inspect stored films or reacted to adverse conditions of film storage or film
degradation.
All films, in all generations are logged into the Libraries' tracking systems, which also
retains records of inspection, density, splices, etc. Today, there are more than 10,000
reels of Florida newspaper microfilms created under this program.

Prior Digitization Effort
Newspaper digitization is not new in the state of Florida. The earliest, in-state effort
was funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation from 1998 through 2001. This
University of Florida project, the Caribbean Newspaper Imaging Project (CNIP:
http://web.uflib.ufl.edu/digital/collections/cnip/eng/project.htm), sought to make
workable low-cost methods using commercial market hardware and tools that any
library could use. Though CNIP technology continues to function, it is now somewhat
dated. Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software available at the time of the
project was found to be unsatisfactory.
Digitization of Florida newspapers has been somewhat less organized until recently.
Previous effort took place under the auspices of the PALMM Project (http://palmm.fcla.
edu/). PALMM is the digital publishing project of the State University Libraries (SUL).
The universities of Florida, North Florida, South Florida, West Florida each have
digitized selected holdings of selected runs, the majority dating from before 1900.
Effort, however, was restrained by the technical limitations of the scanning technology
of the institutions, the delivery technology of the Florida Center for Library Automation
(FCLA), and the display technologies of our PALMM's users in K-12 education. (Cf,
Appendix B for a list of digitized Florida newspapers.)
Most institutions scanned from source documents from their special collections. The
University of Florida, is the only PALMM partner with largely accessible microfilm
collections and microfilm scanners (cf, Appendix C). The University of Florida was the
only institution with sufficient budget to support commercial text conversion, but
competing newspaper technologies and the lack of a viable delivery system prevented
it from converting newspapers. Its recent purchase of Prime Recognition software and
FCLA's recent adoption of Greenstone with iArchives' newspaper modifications (cf,
Appendix C) made it possible to move forward.
The most recent Florida newspaper digitization effort takes the form of the on-going
Ephemeral Cities project. Funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services,
7200 newspaper pages are being digitized by Byte Managers and converted to
searchable text by iArchives for the project (cf, Appendices B and D). These pages
represent nearly the sum of extant newspapers for Gainesville, Key West and Tampa
for the years 1900-1910. Digitization is generally within National Digital Newspaper
Program (NDNP/LC) specification, albeit bi-tonal. And, text conversion is more
specifically targeted than required but can be repurposed to meet NDNP/LC
specification. These newspapers will become available as part of a PALMM Florida
Newspapers Collection, scheduled for launch by June 2005.
Newspaper digitization takes place within a larger context. The State Library and
Archives' Florida Memory (http://www.floridamemory.com) and the libraries of the
State University System's Publication of Archival, Library and Museum Materials







National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):
Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910

(PALMM) (http://palmm.fcla.edu), as well as the Florida Electronic Library (FEL)
(http://www.flelibrary.org/), organize most of Florida's digital content and Florida history
in particular. Collaborative effort, marked by the birth of PALMM, is entering its fifth
year. Florida's digital effort has now matured such that regional collaboration is
beginning to take root. Central Florida Memory (http://centralfloridamemory.lib.ucf.edu/)
is an excellent example of Florida's rapidly growing digitization capacity.
The two largest programs, the proponents of this proposal, are the Florida Center for
Library Automation (FCLA) and the University of Florida's Digital Library Center (DLC).
FCLA is a Title-1 Center of the State of Florida that is charged with providing library
automation services to the State's universities. Its Digital Library Services Division
(http://www.fcla.edu/dlini/dlinipg.html) administers the centralized technologies and
services driving the PALMM Collections. Whereas FCLA administers digital content,
the University of Florida's DLC builds digital library projects and digitizes content, as
do the other institutions contributing to PALMM Collections. The DLC, while a unit of
the University's Libraries, coordinates production and contracts with libraries,
museums and other agencies across Florida and increasingly in the Caribbean.* In
addition, to its digitization services, the DLC also provides analog services. Its in-
house preservation microfilming program is the largest in the southeastern United
States. And, its Newspaper Microfilming program, described above, is allied with the
U.S. Newspaper Program (USNP) in Florida. The National Digital Newspaper
Program: Florida is based at the University of Florida as a continuation of the USNP
also based here.

4.2 Methodology and standards

4.2.1 Selection for Digitization
Selection. Advisory Board will select from among preservation microfilms,
using criteria to be determined.
"* An objective of selection will be to balance geography (both physical and
demographic) with a reporting of events of major significance and topical
importance in Florida history.
"* Selection shall also favor titles on microfilm that are complete or relatively
complete per known extant print copy.
"* Reduction ratio shall also be factored, with preference for microfilms
imaged at 20x or lower. (N.B. This data exists in catalog records and
microfilm image technical reports generated during filming. Its
presentation to the Advisory Board required that the list in Appendix A be
augmented prior to the initial selection meeting.)
"* Quality of original text and microfilm capture, as assessed by DLC Analog
Imaging (quality control) staff subsequent to initial selection, shall also be
taken into effect. Preference will be given to titles of higher quality.
"* Preference will also be shown to microfilms, as assessed by DLC Analog
Imaging Unit (quality control) staff subsequent to initial selection, with
resolution test patterns readable at 5.0 or higher or comparable as
estimated by the Units most experienced staff using the "Quality e"
method.

Cf, Appendix E, initial statement regarding the DLC.







National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):
Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910


(The Advisory Board, outside the requirements of NDNP, will also establish
criteria for selection of microfilms of 1900-1910 not meeting preservation
standard and a funding plan for this work. N.B. This work additional task is not
budgeted for this project.)
Records. Using the University of Florida's cataloging system, ExLibris/Aleph,
Digital Library Center staff in collaboration with Catalog Department staff will
compile CONSER/USNP compliant MARC21 catalog (and holdings) records
into a database with UTF-8 character encoding for shipment to the NDNP at
the Library of Congress.

Essays. Also during the selection process, members of the Advisory Board
who work in Florida History Collection, together with DLC staff, will complete
the following essays:
"* "A history of Florida's newspapers from 1900-1910" (1000 words);
"* "[Title (place of publication)]: history and significance" (250 words,
including scope and contents notes)

4.2.2 Tracking & Preparation for Digitization
DLC Copy Control/Tracking Unit staff will initiate purchase orders for the
generation of second-generation negatives from the first-generation camera-
master negative.
"* The first-generation camera-master negative storage agency, Iron
Mountain/National Underground Storage (Boyers, PA). This work will
proceed under existing contract with the agency, awarded under State of
Florida law.
"* Second-generation negatives will comply, under contract terms, with the
requirement of the RLG Preservation Microfilming Handbook (Nancy
Elkington, editor. Mountain View, CA: RLG, 1992), and initial inspection
will occur at the storage agency by its staff.
"* Second-generation negatives will be shipped to the DLC, and its Analog
Imaging (quality control) staff will then perform a secondary inspection,
completing a microfilm technical inspection report (MTIR) which will then be
logged into the DLC Tracking database (for subsequent reports to the
digitization vendor, DLC Quality Control Unit staff, and to the NDNP at the
Library of Congress.
SThis inspection shall be compliant with routines published in the
Handbook, and shall note background density and other information as
recommended. Cf, the Work Plan below for additional detail; we have
devised confidence testing methods using control sets.

4.2.3 Digitization & Text Conversion
Microfilm frames will be imaged, rotated as necessary into right reading
orientation, split into individual pages as necessary, assigned sequential file
names with associated structural metadata supplying printed section/page
numbers. Specifications for this process follow:







National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):
Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910

Imaging. Grayscale (8-bit) imaging at 400 dpi from second-generation
negative preservation microfilm.
"* Hardware used reads background density from the microfilm, using this
information to establish an average light setting for high-speed
conversion.
"* Whenever possible, hardware will scan for blow-back to source page
dimensions. (N.B. This is not possible only in rare cases, usually when
reduction ratio changes within a reel.)
"* The vendor's software reads image background density and
compensates for light imbalances and other similar defects not readily
apparent during traditional preservation microfilm inspection.
"* Software also deskews images (greater than 30) and crops black edges
in preparation for optical character recognition (OCR).
"* Image out-put shall be uncompressed TIF (6.0), from which JPEG2000,
PDF and text derivatives of the same name shall be processed
subsequently.
SThere shall be one digital image per page with associated technical
metadata (per NDNP Library of Congress specification will be
compiled for each file).
"* The vendor has been instructed to image standards-based target film
strips at the start of each reel and to supply these images with page
images. Targets will include (but are subject to change pending
instruction from the Library of Congress):
"* RIT Alphanumeric Test Object or comparable equivalents: AIIM
Scanner Test Chart #2 or IEEE Facsimile Test Chart, and
"* Kodak grayscale target or a spatial frequency response target
Microfilm targets shall be imaged in addition to pages. They will receive
sequential file names consistent with their placement in the microfilm, but
metadata shall mark them as extraneous data to the publication.
Optical character recognition (OCR), using multiple voting OCR engines,
producing otherwise uncorrected text, with word-bounding boxes and zoned
for column recognition, but without other segmentation.
"* There shall be one text file with UTF-8 character encoding (and no
graphic elements) per page and metadata shall reference the specific
page image to which any given text file is associated.
"* And, text in columns shall be presented in natural reading order,
column-by-column.
"* As possible, the vendor shall also supply confidence level data at
the character, word, line and/or page levels.
"* PDF derivative, with hidden text and metadata referencing the source
publication, date and page number, shall be generated at this point.
"* Bounding box data supplied by iArchives are defined by pixel
coordinate referencing (with in association with the digital master at
100%) for the upper right (x and y) and lower left corners (x and y) of
the word box, expressed as parenthetical expressions. It is within both
the vendor and the DLC's capability to adopt alternate bounding box
expressions as required by the NDNP at the Library of Congress.







National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):
Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910


Metadata.
"* Structural Metadata, for each image, shall be provided for titles,
editions, issues (enumeration and chronology/date), sections, and
pages, but no lower level (e.g., article, by-line, date-line, illustration,
etc.) definition, as necessary to support a calendar-based browsing
interface.
"* Technical Metadata, for each image, shall be provided consistent
inasmuch as possible with the mandatory requirements of Z39.87-2002
(or later) : Data Dictionary for Technical Metadata for Digital Still
Images, including information derived from the TIFF header (and tags
required of Library of Congress contractors [http://memory.loc.gov/
ammem/prpsal/attach5.html]).
SWe propose to ship information specific to the source microfilm
bundled with this digital image technical metadata, compliant with
the recommendations of NISO Standards Committee AU/Z39.87 :
Data Dictionary for Technical Metadata for Digital Still Images (of
which the NDNP:FL Principal Investigator, Erich Kesse, is a
committee member). However, it is within our ability to ship
technical metadata relative source microfilm characteristics
separately if requested by the Library of Congress.
"* Administrative Metadata, for each image, shall document actions and
responsibilities for the various processes applied by this project.
"* Bibliographic Metadata, (expressed in associative structure of XML) for
each image, will be provided in a record structure as required by the
Library of Congress (cf, Product Wrapping/Directory Structure, below;
see also Library of Congress Technical Specifications at
http://www.loc.gov/ndnp/ndnp_techguide.pdf).
The product, including all by-products, shall be supplied to the National Digital
Newspaper Program (NDNP) at the Library of Congress.
Product Wrapping/Directory Structure.
All product (images, text, and metadata) shall be organized into a
hierarchical directory structure sufficient for identification and differentiation
of the various product types. While the exact structure is to be negotiated
with the NDNP at the Library of Congress, we propose the following.
(Additional detail to be provided/negotiated following award.)
> Title
> Edition
... (intervening bibliographic/publication hierarchy)
> Section
> Target Film Strip (as applicable)
> Page
> TIF
> JP2*
> PDF*
> Text
> Metadata (structural, technical, administrative)
*Files associated with any given page shall share the same file names.







National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):
Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910

SIt is our preference to supply metadata with the image products (TIF,
JPEG2000 and PDF with hidden text) in XML files. But, it is within our
ability to provide them also or later, upon request, in tab-delimited, MySQL,
MS-SQL, or MS Access formats. (It will be provided to the Florida Center
for Library Automation (FCLA) in MXF (METS compliant XML) files.)
(The University of Florida will also contribute the product to the PALMM Florida
Newspapers Collection, for deployment within Florida and for query in
combination with resources in other PALMM Collections. This secondary use,
which will support lower level definition, is viewed as providing a test-bed for an
eventually expanded NDNP interface as it builds toward consensus on what
the national historic newspaper mark-up (DTD: document type definition)
should be. This product will also be shared with the Florida Electronic Library.
N.B. These activities will be completed with state funds and are not budgeted
for this project.)
(The University of Florida and its PALMM partners also plan to contribute
repurposed existing digital newspaper images (cf, Appendix B), on its own
timetable, to the Library of Congress outside this NDNP project. N.B. This
activity will be completed with state funds and are not budgeted for this
project.)

4.2.4 Quality Control
See, Workflow, section 4.3.4, Quality Control.
In accord with Library of Congress specifications for NDNP projects, we
propose not cropping or other image modification during quality control.
JPEG2000 images (.JP2) are derived at this point by DLC Quality Control
application (cf, Appendix C), currently using the Adobe Photoshop
implementation of the JPEG2000, Part 1 (or ISO-15444) standard. (N.B. Actual
compression/quality, optimization, tile size, etc. can be set as instructed.)

4.2.5 Delivery & Deployment
Using the MARC records database compiled earlier, Systems Department DLC
support staff will ensure association of records with structural metadata for
images compiled throughout the processes described above.

4.4 Staff
An Organizational Chart and Curricula Vitae for staff listed in this Section are found in
Appendix E.
4.4.1 Selection for Digitization
Project Administration will be the responsibility of Erich Kesse, assisted by
Stephanie Haas. Mr. Kesse has directed the Digital Library Center at the
University of Florida since 2000. He has been the lead on several digitization
grants, co-founded the PALMM project, and served on several standards
committees for both analog and digital media as well as technical and
administrative metadata. Previously, from 1987, he chaired the George A.
Smathers Libraries' Preservation Department including its microfilming (i.e.,
Reprographics) unit. The Reprographics Unit merged into the Digital Library
Center in 2004; newspaper preservation microfilming continues to represent
more than 90% of that unit's production. Ms. Haas has served as the Center's
Assistant Director since 2000. From 1989, she served as a collection manager
in the sciences.
Mr. Kesse will provide general and technical project direction, liaison with the
Library of Congress and the Florida Center for Library Automation, and serve
as lead vendor contact. Ms. Haas will coordinate internal staff in all other areas
of production. They, in turn, will be assisted by two consultants: Martha Hruska
and Priscilla Caplan. Ms. Hruska, Smathers Libraries' Director for Technology
Services and coordinator of the USNP:FL newspaper microfilming project, will
liaison the USNP:FL and NDNP:FL programs, continuing to assist in state-wide
outreach, and will also have an ex-officio role on this project's Advisory Board.

vendor, Iron Mountain/National Underground Storage, is the responsibility of
Nelda Schwartz and Will Canova.

Ms. Schwartz will also liaison with Naomi Young, serials cataloger, Smathers
Libraries' Catalog Department on bibliographic issues. Before assuming a
"gate keeping" and data management role in the Digital Library Center, Nelda
served as Reprographics Unit Head in the Preservation Department and,
earlier, managed its Brittle Books Program. She is a veteran of several large
preservation microfilming projects, most recently the Baldwin Children's
Literature project and the U.S. Agricultural Information Network : FL project.
Ms. Schwartz will compile metadata, prepare project schedules, and process
microfilm reproduction invoices.

Mr. Canova will liaison with the microfilm storage and reproduction vendor,
supervise second-generation microfilm quality control, and manage shipments
of microfilm to the digitization/text-conversion vendor. Mr. Canova manages
analog reprographics and duplication services for the Digital Library Center,
including its in-house microfilming and microfilm processing services.

Quality Control review of control sets will be supervised by the Imaging Unit
head, Randall Renner, and include his units section heads: Will Canova
(analog imaging) and the incumbent digital imaging section head. Mr. Renner
will also serve as primary liaison with the vendor for image quality issues.

4.4.3 Digitization & Text Conversion
The University of Florida is undergoing devolution from state government and
its purchasing systems are currently in migration to PeopleSoft systems. As a
result, there was insufficient time to conclude a formal bid process. Selection







National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):
Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910

of the imaging and text conversion vendor is based on response to blind RFI,
pending formal bid. It is our intent, a requirement of state law, to complete this
process and to award the project to the most competent bidder with the lowest
price.* RFP/bid is based on specifications outlined in Methodology, above.
The University of Florida and a preliminary project discussion team elected to
vend these services rather than to provide them in-house. Based on RFI
pending formal bid, we elected the ByteManagers and iArchives partnership.
This partnership currently provides similar newspaper conversion services for
our IMLS-funded Ephemeral Cities project.
The primary contractual partner will be ByteManagers which will subcontract
text conversion to iArchives. Contractual relations will be with ByteManagers.
Microfilm conversion will be the responsibility of ByteManagers. Text-
conversion with bounding words will be the responsibility of iArchives. Each
partner will be responsible for metadata associated with their component. This
relationship continues to work well in the Ephemeral Cities project.

4.4.4 Quality Control
Jane Pen and Gus Clifton, together with an incumbent to be hired for a
currently vacant digital imaging position, will provide quality control.
Jane Pen has managed the Digital Library Center's Quality Control Unit for
more than two years, following a prior assignment in the Center's Imaging Unit.
The Quality Control Unit will review images and associated metadata returned
from the vendor to ensure product meeting specifications. She will be assisted
by the incumbent digital imaging unit head, who will use the Center's Mekel
525GS microfilm scanner to create control sets (cf, 4.3.2.4) from microfilms
selected for digitization. Review is assisted by automation, programmed and
maintained by the Center's two programmers. Errors will be reported to
Randall Renner, who will communicate with the Vendor for error correction.
Gus Clifton has managed the Center's Text Conversion and Mark-up Unit for
approximately one year, following a prior assignment in the Reprographics
Unit, where he supervised newspaper microfilming. His Unit will review text
and text-bound (i.e., PDF) products and associated metadata returned from the
vendor. His Unit will use the Center's PrimeRecognition and other software to
create control samples for comparison against returned product. Mr. Clifton will
also serve as primary liaison with the vendor for text quality issues.

4.4.5 Delivery & Deployment
Delivery and deployment activities, including final metadata and image
packaging, will be the responsibility of the Digital Library Center's programmer
for data systems, Mark Sullivan. Lu Ai, Librarian with the Digital Library
Services Division at the Florida Center for Library Automation, will provide



$ The University of Florida's Digital Library Center has had good relations and successful
large projects with most of the vendors responding to our RFI.







National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):
Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910

independent secondary review of the final package and products and deliver
them to the Library of Congress.
DLC programmers, Mark Sullivan and Ying Tang, administer DLC FTP and
production servers. They are assisted by other Smathers Libraries' Systems
Department Staff, Will Chaney, who will manage nightly back-ups of these
servers. Data on DLC servers is backed-up nightly and backups retained until
data is archived to Mitsui gold-based DVD5, archive listed with MD5 checksum,
and FTPed to the FCLA Digital Archive (http://www.fcla.edu/digitalArchivel
index.htm).
DLC tracking supervisor, Nelda Schwartz, will be responsible for shipping
second-generation microfilms to the Library of Congress.
Assessment Team. An assessment team comprised of staff from both the
University of Florida and Florida State University, will, will consult with the
Digital Library Center, the Advisory Board and their institutions, to design and
conduct surveys of user attitudes and research methods and assess interface
behaviors facilitating use and research in particular. Team members include,
at the University of Florida, Marilyn Ochoa, Reference Librarian for Digital
Services, and, at Florida State University, Robert H. McDonald and Bridget
Turnipseed. Ms. Ochoa is Reference Librarian for Digital Services and
Collections. Mr. McDonald is Assistant Director for Technology. And, Ms.
Turnipseed serves as E-Resources Librarian. Each of these consultants has
experience and research interests in human computer interaction.





















Mitsui gold-based DVDs only recently came on the market in the U.S.A. Manufactured
in Pennsylvania, these DVD-R disks meet the DVD specification (ECMA-267 ISO/IEC
16448). The Authoring specification is generally accepted by digital archivists for disk
storage.

6.1 Appendix A
1900-1910 Florida Newspapers on Preservation Microfilm

While other state institutions* have microfilmed state newspapers, the University of
Florida is the only institution in the state of Florida holding preservation microfilm.
(Bullets represent individual reel contents.)

HISTORICAL NOTES
Reviewers of this list should bear in mind that Florida was one of the first states
to begin microfilming its newspapers and one of the last to enter the U.S.
Newspaper Project (USNP). Many of Florida's newspaper microfilms were
created before the preservation microfilming standards that we work with today
were established in the early-to mid-1 980s. These early microfilm were
excluded by the USNP, which sought to preserve never filmed newspapers, and
therefore are not listed here.
Reviewers should also know that before 1900, much of Florida had been frontier.
Though a simplification, it can be said that rail and shipping lines marked the
frontier's boundaries. Shipping lines formed an outline around the peninsula of
Florida connected Pensacola Tampa Key West Miami Fort Pierce -
Jacksonville. Rail lines, which continued to grow well beyond 1910, initially drew
the boundary between "settled" and "native" Florida across the state from St.
Augustine to Tampa. Reviewers with a knowledge of Florida's geography
therefore, will note that none of Florida's major present day cities of South
Florida, e.g., Orlando, Boca Raton, Palm Beach, Miami, are represented in the
following list.

"Other state institutions that have microfilmed newspapers, albeit not to preservation standard,
include public institutions such as the University of South Florida (selected Tampa Bay area
newspapers), the University of West Florida (selected Pensacola and Panhandle area newspapers),
and Florida State Library and Archives (various state newspapers); and commercial agencies such as
the New York Times Newspapers (which owns and microfilms its regional newspapers, e.g., the
Gainesville Sun and Ocala Star-Banner) and Florida's major independent newspapers (e.g., Miami
Herald, St. Petersburg Times) frequently in collaboration with major microfilm vendors (e.g.,
ProQuest/UMI). The microfilm holdings are maintained in the USNP:FL database housed at the
University of Florida (cf, http://www.uflib.ufl.edu/flnews/)

Appendix A
1900-1910 Florida Newspapers on Preservation Microfilm
(Continued)

Several Members of the Advisory Board have noted that there are other
newspapers that should be considered. Unfortunately, each of the titles they
listed was not available on preservation microfilm per the requirements of the
National Digital Newspaper Program. We will ask our Advisory Board to address
the issue and to help us find funding to supplement this project.

"* Daily Metropolis (Miami, FL)
"* Jacksonville Metropolis (Jacksonville, FL)
Filmed issues often contain the specially printed insert that went to
subscribers in the black community; it is important as a component
of the African American press and has already been used and cited
in scholarly publications.
"* Colored Citizen (Pensacola, FL)
Another title important to the black community, particularly in the
later half of the decade.
Florida Baptist Witness (Jacksonville, FL)
Published since 1884, it documents a good part of Florida's
religious heritage. Before the start of the Twentieth Century, Florida
had been largely a Baptist and Methodist reserve. The Catholic
population of Spanish and French Florida had largely been eclipsed
by American protestants after Florida became a U.S. Territory in
1822.
The Witness begins one year before statehood and marks a
boundary, a kind of eminent domain and protestant ascendancy.
Between 1900-1910, the domain on which it reported faced its first
major challenge, as people of faiths both new and old to Florida
found their foothold in the state.
SThe several cigar work/labor union newspapers of Tampa's
Ybor City
Some but not all of these titles have been selected for the
Ephemeral Cities project and will be shipped to the Library of
Congress.
Others, however, are published in Spanish or Italian and do not
meet the language requirements of the National Digital Newspaper
Program at this time. Bi-lingual publications, including El
Internacional, may qualify if not for film quality.

6.2 Appendix B
Digitized Florida Newspapers

The following Florida newspapers have been digitized for either the PALMM Florida
Heritage Collection (http://palmm.fcla.edu/fhl) or for the Institute for Museum and
Library Services funded Ephemeral Cities project (http://web.uflib.ufl.edu/digital/
collections/ephemeralcities/).

Several titles are marked "digitized, not yet available". These are titles pending public
release of FCLA's Greenstone application. All have been digitized to NDNP/LC
specifications and converted to searchable text. They can be repurposed with slight
modifications to NDNP/LC derivative format specifications.

Title holdings fall both within and beyond the period, 1990-1910. The University of
Florida and its PALMM partners (i.e., the institutions holding the digital masters)
propose to repurpose these holdings as funding becomes available outside the NDNP
for delivery to the NDNP. [N.B. This effort is not budgeted nor cost shared as part of
this proposal.]

Digitized Florida Newspapers
(continued)

Gainesville, Key West, and Tampa

Also digitized, but not yet available on-line, are newspaper holdings from
Gainesville, Key West and Tampa. Funded by the IMLS Ephemeral Cities
project, these are almost all of the available newspaper issues published
between 1900-1910 for each city. Major titles include the Gainesville Sun and
the Tampa Tribune. This small collection is complete in approximately 7,200
pages.

These titles, though digitized to NDNP specification, were digitized from the
sole existing microfilm copies: commercial microfilms that were in many cases
placed into use. Digital copy was created with techniques optimized to mitigate
the effects of both use and imbalanced lighting; they represent best available
copy.

"* Demonstration issues of the Tampa Tribune may still be online at this
temporary iArchives based site: http://64.90.195.24/gsdl/cgi-bin/uoffl for
reviewer and panelist inspection.

The IMLS-funded Ephemeral Cities project had no requirement for the use of
preservation microfilm.
The Tampa Tribune was a poorly microfilmed commercial product. And the
only extant copy was found in a used collection. Those inspecting the product
are advised that they will find all of the ills of such product.
The Tampa Tribune was selected for its quality of its reporting rather than the
quality of its "preservation". Other Tampa newspapers selected, including
those of the Ybor City cigar manufacturing district, have equal intellectual value
but suffer the ills of poor production and storage.
Reviewers are also advised to note that the Greenstone platform in particular
had no native newspaper support. This is a freely available but developing
application.

Hardware & Software for Quality Control Inspection

Computer workstations
Each with the capacity to perform quality control of images, text and to archive
files. Each is relatively current, operating at speeds at or greater than 2.2 GHz
Pentium 4 processors or better many with dual processors; a minimum of
1GB RAM, and 120 GB hard-drives, and Plextor CD/DVD writers. Most
workstations run Windows XP (sp2), though some still run Windows NT 4.0.
Their monitors are calibrated weekly if not more frequently.
"* The (Image) Quality Control Unit currently operates 5 dedicated computer
workstations.
"* The Text Conversion and Mark-up Unit currently operates 5 dedicated
computer workstations, with dual monitor configurations optimized for side-by-
side review of digital page image and text.
"* And, both Units routinely access to the workstations of the Digital Imaging Unit
when they are not scheduled for production. The Digital Imaging Unit operates
15 computer workstations, many with dual monitor configurations.
"* The Digital Imaging Unit also maintains a dedicated workstation for microfilm
scanning, cf, Mekel 525 GS, below.
"* Additionally, the Copy Control/Tracking Unit operates 4 dedicated computer
workstations and has access to the workstations of the Analog Imaging Unit
when they are not otherwise scheduled for use.

Mekel 525GS Gray-scale Microfilm Scanner
"* http://www.mekel.com/prod03.htm
"* The Mekel 525GS is a robust, potentially high-speed gray-scale microfilm
scanner, capable of 300 dpi uncompressed-TIF out-put.
N.B. Gray scale out-put is native JPEG, which staff converts immediately to
uncompressed TIF while the image remains on screen. (Rather than
reopening the image after saved, this routine retains optimal as-scanned image
qualities.)
"* We do not propose to use this unit for project production. In addition to the
gray-scale issue, this unit runs in production mode only with considerable set
up and difficulty.
"* We propose to use the Mekel 525GS to image selected frames of microfilm
reels in order to create control sets for vendor information and quality control.
Control sets will be used for a variety of purposes:
To visually inspect second-generation negative microfilms produced for
digitization from stored camera-master first-generation negative
microfilms. The configuration of the Mekel 525GS is optimal for
inspection of preservation microfilm as outlined by RLG Preservation
Microfilming Handbook (Mountain View, CA : Research Libraries Group,
1992).
N.B. Erich Kesse, Director, Digital Library Center and Principal
Investigator for this project, was one of the editors of the Handbook's
technical specifications.

Appendix C
Hardware & Software for Quality Control Inspection
(continued)

Mekel 525GS Gray-scale Microfilm Scanner (continued)
"* To determine image imperfections not readily identified by standard
microfilm inspection procedures. Digitization, in our experience, is an
excellent means of identifying illumination imbalance and related issues
that impact digital image quality. Imperfections will be noted on the
report sent to the microfilm digitization vendor.
Our vendors, ByteManagers and iArchives, operate microfilm
digitization hardware with software controls that mitigate know
illumination issues.
"* To process page images, using our installation of the PrimeRecognition
(see, PrimeRecognition, below) and UF DLC Zoning application to
pretest text conversion and mark-up. Pretests will set benchmarks for
vendor text product quality.

UF DLC Tracking Database
"* The Tracking Database is the DLCs work queue and product record database.
It manages all aspects of each of our digital projects and will be used in
Florida's National Digital Newspaper Project.
"* The application stores data in Microsoft SQL tables and its interface and
behaviors are programmed in C# for the .NET framework, v1.1.
"* In addition to collection data and queuing work, it also generates packing lists,
statistical reports, etc.

UF DLC QC Application
"* The Quality Control (QC) application is a locally programmed GUI that
generated JPEG thumbnails and JPEG2000 derivatives and presents them in
sequential order for inspection. (N.B. Actual JPEG2000 compression/quality,
optimization, tile size, etc. can be set as instructed.)
"* In addition to visual inspection, the application allows its user to attach or
confirm structural metadata (both physical e.g., page and section numbering
and intellectual e.g., chapter headings, article titles, etc.), to accept or
decline images, and to perform basic image manipulation or correction (e.g.,
rotation, etc.)
"* The application report rates of acceptance with and without correction and
rates of decline together with detailed error findings.
"* The DLC QC application will be used to review, accept or decline vendor image
product.

Adobe PhotoShop CS
"* Adobe PhotoShop CS is used in conjunction with the DLC QC Application to
perform basic manipulation and correction, as well as to generate JPEG2000
derivative versions.
"* Programming effort is currently underway to move away from Adobe
PhotoShop toward open source software (likely either IrfanView or GIMP
together with their JPEG2000 plug-ins).

SWe hope to compile the DLC applications suite for distribution to other digital
library programs and hope that participants in the National Digital Newspaper
Program might agree to alpha-testing, as a means of asserting a modicum of
vendor independence that might, in turn, reduce costs. [N.B. This open
source/alpha testing plan is not budgeted as part of this proposal.]

UF DLC Zoning Application
"* A locally programmed application, similar to PrimeZone, a plug-in application
for PrimeRecognition optical character recognition (OCR) software.
"* DLC Zoning improves accuracy by identifying columns and complex layout
structures. N.B. PrimeRecognition has automatic zoning capability, but it is our
general experience that the addition of Zoning control improves OCR out-put.
One of out objectives for this project is to determine the extent to which
such a tool is necessary and to review cost over increased accuracy.
"* The UF DLC Zone application is being developed as an open source
application that can be given to other institutions. It will be alpha-tested by the
University of Central Florida and the University of the Virgin Islands in FY2004-
2005.
"* The application is different from PrimeZone in that, like the UF DLC QC
application, it allows the attachment of structural metadata to zones and can be
used in concert with PrimeRecognition to produce intelligent mark-up.

PrimeRecognition
"* PrimeRecognition (http://www.primerecognition.com) optical character
recognition (OCR) software is run by the Digital Library Center on a dedicated
server. The application is configured with PrimeOCR, PrimeView, and
PrimeVerify, using six (6) voting OCR engines.
"* We propose to use PrimeRecognition, together with the UF DLC Zoning
application, to establish a control set of files for text conversion against which
to bench-mark vendor text product.
"* N.B. Our vendor, iArchives uses similar software with multiple OCR engines.
Rather than voting and selecting the best fit, its OCR application provides
alternate selections parenthetically following the best fit. In order to be
compliant with Library of Congress specification for this project, we have
instructed the vendor to set this feature off.

RecordNow MAX
"* RecordNow MAX is the CD/DVD burning application of choice by the Digital
Library Center.
"* It creates MD5 checksums prior to burn and verifies the burn against stored
checksums to ensure accurate burn.
"* All data (image, text, etc.) is burnt by the DLC to gold based media, whether
CD or DVD, using Plextor writers.

Appendix C
Hardware & Software for Quality Control Inspection
(continued)

RecordNow MAX (continued)
To ensure that disk spin cycles are not detrimental to burn quality, CDs do not
burn above 8X and DVDs do not burn above 4X.

UF DLC FileSort Application
"* FileSort is the DLC application that again calculates the MD5 checksum of files
archived to CD/DVD and stores it together with other file information (name,
size, format, version, creation date, write method, media etc.) either extracted
from the file header or supplied by the application's user.
"* FileSort saves this information in an independent Microsoft SQL database,
backed-up nightly.
"* FileSort acts on stored information to queue and trigger archive maintenance:
inspection and migration. And, it can be used to assist in the inspection
process generating new MD5 checksums for long-stored CD/DVDs and
comparing them to stored MD5s generated when the file was originally
archived.

FCLA MXF Client or UF DLC interface based on the client's DTD and controls
"* The Florida Center for Library Automation (FCLA) MXF Client is a METS
compatible file exchange format used to ship file/metadata packages between
the Digital Library Center, where they are created, and FCLA where they are
both deployed and, again, archived.
"* In this project, we propose to use the Client or a new interface now being
programmed by the DLC programmers for FCLA as a replacement to the MXF
Client as a method of shipping packages between us.
"* Packages shipped to FCLA will be reviewed for quality.
(Copy will be archived there and another copy will be mounted in the planned
PALMM Florida Newspapers Collection, before being sent on to the Library of
Congress for deployment in the National Digital Newspaper Project.)

Microsoft Office Suite
The Microsoft Office 2003 suite will be used to generate Word reports, Access
database records/tables, Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations
as necessary.

Adobe Acrobat Exchange Professional
"* Adobe Acrobat will be used to open and review the quality of vendor PDFs and
their hidden text.
"* Adobe Acrobat also will be used to generate PDF files.

Microsoft SQL and other data control and programming software
"* Microsoft SQL will be used to generate SQL records/tables as necessary.
"* Microsoft SQL underpins the majority of our internal data stores, including
those used by the Tracking Database and the FileSort application
"* Systems programmers assigned to the Digital Library Center support use a
variety of other Microsoft programming tools, including: the .NET framework
v1.1 and Microsoft Studio .NET Professional. The majority of programming is
done in #C for the .NET framework, that a number of applications are
programmed in PERL.

Florida Newspapers & the Ephemeral Cities Project

Ephemeral Cities is a project funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services
and is the consorted effort of the University of Florida (lead institution), Florida
International University and the University of South Florida, together with their local
partners including the Alachua County Public Library and Alachua County Public
Records Office in Gainesville, the Monroe County Public Library in Key West, and the
Henry Plante Museum in the Ybor City district of Tampa.

The Project partners' web page is at http://web.uflib.ufl.edu/digital/collections/
ephemeralcities/ together with the project proposal.

Ephemeral Cities proposes to link information resources to clickable historic maps.
Newspapers are included as name and event rich information sources.

The project requires that searchable text resources, including 7200 newspaper pages,
be tagged with name authority, geographic and temporal keys as to support map
interactions.

Documents will be searchable both textually within text search systems, e.g., XPAT for
monographs and serials and a modified Greenstone application for newspapers, and
visually as geographic layers within a map interface, e.g., modified ESRI Map server
applications.

CONSULTANTS

Priscilla Caplan

Priscilla Caplan is the Director of the Digital Library Services Division at the
Florida Center for Library Automation (FCLA), a post she has held for the past
five years. Before coming to FCLA, she was Assistant Director for Library

she is published in each. But, she is most widely known for her work in
metadata standardization, having held prominent positions with the Dublin Core
Advisory Committee and the National Information Standards Organization's
Standards Development Committee.

Priscilla will consult with the Project's Principal Investigator, other consultants
and the Advisory Board on newspaper metadata issues. She has studied
issues of newspaper metadata and served with the National Information
Standards Organization when it took up the University of Florida's request to
consider empanelling a standards committee to deal with historic newspaper
metadata issues. In her capacity at FCLA, she has investigated newspaper
deployment systems and consulted with vendors and other service providers

ADVISORY BOARD MEMBERS

The Advisory Board is composed of members with various strengths. Some are
expert in Florida History. Others are recognized for their administrative skills and
knowledge of higher education in Florida. Others represent state and regional
library cooperatives and are close to a membership serving a broad spectrum of
public information needs. Others represent publishing in general or journalism in
particular.

Barry Baker
Mr. Barry Baker serves as Director of Libraries at the University of Central
Florida in Orlando, a rapidly growing institution serving one of Florida's fastest
growing regions. Mr. Baker also a member of the Executive Committee of the
Association of Caribbean University, Research and Institutional Libraries
(ACURIL), and reflects Florida's long association with the Caribbean. Mr.
Baker is Florida Library Network Council member, an advisory board for the
Florida Electronic Library (http://www.flelibrary.org/).
Mr. Baker is the Principal Investigator of several digitization projects, including
the respected Central Florida Memory (http://centralfloridamemory.lib.ucf.edu/
default.asp) project, which hopes to broaden its "Florida Stories" with access to
Florida's newspapers. The 1900s marked an awakening for Central Florida
and Orlando in particular, a growth clearly illustrated on the Sanborn@ Fire
Insurance Maps (http://palmm.fcla.edu/sanborn/) and outlined in the collections
of Central Florida Memory. But access to newspaper texts will provide new
depth.
While at the University of Georgia, Mr. Baker served as Principal Investigator
for the U.S. Newspaper Project in Georgia.

Bill Conniff
Dr William P. Conniff serves as Executive Director of the Panhandle Libraries
Access Network (PLAN), which serves libraries throughout the multi-county
region of Florida's panhandle. He also serves on the Florida Library Network
Council member, an advisory board for the Florida Electronic Library
(http://www.flelibrary.org/).
Dr. Conniff sits on SOLINET's Preservation Advisory Committee (PAC).
SOLINET is the south's regional OCLC and library services provider. The PAC
advises development on National Endowment for the Humanities-supported

stranger to preservation microfilming or to library systems.
Dr. Conniff is the Principal Investigator of a LSTA-funded regional digitization
project that will contribute holdings to the PALMM Collections.

James Cusick
Dr. James G. Cusick serves as Curator for the P.K. Yonge Library of Florida
History at the University of Florida. Established in 1945, the Yonge Library
predates the State Archives as a repository of Florida material and is ranked as
one of the best and most comprehensive collections on Florida history. He is
responsible for selection of the University of Florida's contributions to the
Florida Heritage Collection, the Florida Map Collection, and the Goza and
Mickler Florida Newspaper Article Database. Most pertinent to this grant, the
Yonge Library holds the state's most extensive collection of both original
Florida print newspapers and newspapers on microfilm. Indeed, the
University's newspaper preservation microfilming is largely driven by the
collection of the P.K. Yonge Library.
Dr. Cusick's most recent book is The Other War of 1812: The Patriot War and
the American Invasion of Spanish East Florida (Gainesville, FL : University
Press of Florida, 2003). And, he is the recipient of an award from the St.
Augustine Foundation to digitize and make searchable the card calendar of the
East Florida Papers.
More apt to his membership on the Advisory Board of this project is his recent
involvement in the National Endowment for the Humanities-funded Florida
Humanities Council workshop series for teachers of Florida history. The series
promoted development of learning modules and other curricula. And, he is co-
Principal Investigator with Erich Kesse, on the component project,
"Development of a Teachers' Resources Website."

education theory and practices to this Project. She is keenly interested in
information literacy issues and the impact of information technologies on
education, society and librarianship.

Mark Flynn
Mr. Mark Flynn directs the Florida Electronic Library (http://www.flelibrary.org/)
(FEL) and, previously, was instrumental in the launch of Florida Memory
(http://www.floridamemory.com/) at Florida's Division of Library and Information
Services. FEL harvests content from Florida Memory, the PALMM Collections,
and other digital libraries from throughout Florida. FEL, in turn, packages these
resources together with commercially acquired resources to Florida's Public
Libraries and to anyone anywhere with a Florida public library card. The
citizens of the state of Florida would benefit directly and immediately from the
National Digital Newspaper Project in Florida.
In addition to his understanding of Florida's digital libraries, Mr. Flynn brings an
understanding of virtual reference services as well as Florida's Distance
Learning Library Initiative. He also comes with contacts in Florida's LSTA
program, where he had served as a program officer and within the State
Library. Mark reports for Florida's State Librarian, Judith Ring.


Mark Greenberg
Dr. Mark I. Greenberg directs the Florida Studies Center and the Special
Collections Department at the University Libraries both on the campus of the
University of South Florida (USF) in Tampa. He has directed the Center since

American and Caribbean Studies program.
Dr. Greenberg has been an assistant editor of The Florida Historical Quarterly.
In 2000, the Mississippi Humanities Council named him Humanities Scholar of
the Year. He has published and lectured extensively on Jewish history in the
South. His most recent presentation on Florida's Jewish heritage was Shalom
Y'all, a 2004 film presentation to the Florida Folklore Society, that dealt with
contemporary Jewish life in both large cities and small towns throughout the
Deep South.







National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):

At USF, his young Oral History Program is now recognized as one of Florida's
best. His interest in documentary heritage extends back to his tenure at the
University of Florida's Department of History and its Samuel Proctor Oral
History Program, the oldest such program in Florida and one of the largest in
the South.
Dr. Greenberg brings the infrastructure of the Florida Studies Center, as well,
to the Advisory Board. The Center's affiliates include research and teaching
faculty in all areas of Florida studies: history, sociology, politics, agriculture,
transportation, law, economics, religion, etc.

Raymond Neal
Mr. Raymond Neal serves as Senior Librarian of the Florida Collection at
Jacksonville Public Library, one of Florida's largest public libraries. The
Collection serves the entire northeastern Florida region, with particular strength
in Jacksonville history.
The Collection and Mr. Neal's understanding of Jacksonville history are
particularly important. At the start of the Twentieth Century, Jacksonville was
Florida's largest, most industrial and most vibrant city. Key West, Miami,
Pensacola and Tampa were distant rivals. Located not far from the Georgia
boarder, on the major north/south rail lines, and Florida's largest port,
Jacksonville was, for many, the gateway to Florida. Many of the state's
influential newspapers of the decade 1900-1910 were published in
Jacksonville. The most important event of Jacksonville and, some would say,
of Florida's history for this period was the Great Fire of 1901 that leveled the
City. Jacksonville's reconstruction and the ascendancy of its rivals is well
documented in these newspapers.
Prior to becoming head of the Florida Collection, Mr. Neal was Project Librarian
for the Jacksonville Public Library Digital Library Collection (DLC). The DLC
(http://jpl.coj.net/DLC/DLC.html) is an effort to digitize the library's more notable
holdings, including rare books, manuscripts, a sizeable postcard collection,
photographs and other assorted items.

Arva Moore Parks
Ms. Arva Parks is a Florida writer and illustrator from south Florida. Her most
recent publication is Miami Then and Now (Miami, FL : Thunder Bay Press,
2003). Originally published in 1992 and republished in 2003, it is an illustrated
historical account of Miami's growth. Her other publications include:
"* The Forgotten Frontier: Florida through the Lens of Ralph Middleton Munroe
(Miami, FL: Banyan Books, 1977)
"* Where the River Found the Bay: Historical Study of the Granada Site,
Miami, Florida. (Tallahassee, FL : Florida Department of State, [1985])
"* Harry Truman and the Little White House in Key West (Miami, FL :
Centennial Press, 1991)
"* Miami: the Magic City (Miami, FL: Centennial Press, 1991)
"* Miami Beach: a History (edited by Ms. Parks; Miami, FL : Centennial
Press, 1994)







National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP):
Florida Newspapers, 1900-1910

"* Miami, the American Crossroad: A Centennial Journey, 1896-1996
([Needham Heights, MA] : Simon & Schuster, 1996)
"* Honor & Excellence : a Century of Ransom Everglades School, with
Laura Pincus (Miami, FL: Centennial Press, 2003)
Ms. Parks' career as an historian of Miami and south Florida have examined
the history of Miami, particularly during the heady Boom years of 1890-1920.

David Shedden
Mr. David Shedden directs the Eugene Patterson Library at the Poynter
Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida. The Poynter Institute is one of the country's
foremost independent schools of journalism.
In addition to serving as the Institute's library director, Mr. Shedden is also a
researcher for the Poynter Online website. Since 1995 he has maintained an
