Caribbean Newspaper Digital Library:
Disseminating and Preserving Records of Daily Life

Application to Florida International University as a sub-contract participant regarding its
application to the US Department of Education's Technological Innovation and Cooperation for
Foreign Information Access (TICFIA) grant program, entitled, "Caribbean Newspaper Digital
Library: Disseminating and Preserving Records of Daily Life."

In order to preserve and increase access to valuable resources for the study of the Caribbean
and the advancement of Caribbean Studies, the Latin American and Caribbean Center at Florida
International University and the Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Florida, in
consortium with the libraries at Florida International University, the University of Florida, the
University of Central Florida, and the University of the Virgin Islands, propose a multifaceted,
collaborative international digital newspaper library. The Caribbean Newspaper Digital Library
(CNDL) will cross borders and build collaboration among diverse institutions to share resources
in a common space, expanding the range of Caribbean materials available to scholars, students
and citizens.
This digital library will comprise newspapers that examine similarities and differences in histories,
cultures, languages and governments. Caribbean newspapers cover the news of the day-
economic, political, cultural, and environmental. CNDL will be an umbrella for regional
newspaper digitization, including literary news journals, traditional newspapers, government
gazettes, and other works in newsprint whether held in isolation at a single institution or in
incomplete runs across multiple institutions. CNDL's primary output will be a critical mass of
currently endangered resources, largely unavailable to American researchers.
Building upon the success of a cooperative pilot project and progress made over the course of
planning CNDL meetings, this project proposes to meet the following goals:

o Increase access to and preserve Caribbean newspapers of note in English, French,
Haitian Creole, Spanish, Dutch, and Papiamento by digitizing, archiving and making them
searchable through a centralized interface;
o Digitize complete runs of individual Caribbean newspaper titles, whenever possible, to
unite fragmented collections and present the most complete history;
o Build capacity for newspaper preservation and access in the Caribbean region by
developing a multi-layered and comprehensive digital preservation and metadata creation
training program with guidelines for requesting Internet distribution permissions from
o Cultivate new research initiatives among Caribbean scholars by providing increased
access through full text search and article-level indexing;
o Create tools to assist with overall newspaper digitization and specifically create software
to assist with newspaper segmentation, both manually and automatically, into the
individual article level;
o Ensure sustainability of the CNDL by consolidating existing organizational and technical
frameworks established by Digital Library of the Caribbean and assist local partners in
incorporating newspaper digitization into national public policy agendas, as well as assist
with secondary grant-writing and other fundraising activities.
