I saw reference to this in several places today. Yet another upcoming resource for digitized newspapers and other materials. This is a bit different in that it will include many newspapers from outside the U.S. The company involved, East View Information Services, is located here in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota.
From the press release last year:
“Minneapolis, MN, USA. November 2, 2016—East View is excited to announce a long-term relationship with Stanford University Libraries and the Hoover Institution Library & Archives to make rare newspapers from around the world available for research. East View will work with faculty and collection development specialists in numerous subject areas to improve discoverability and access to over 2,500 predominantly foreign-language titles dating as far back as the nineteenth century that are part of the collections at Stanford Libraries and the Hoover Institution Library & Archives.
Opening a treasure trove for researchers, this joint initiative will digitally preserve and make searchable potentially 25 million pages of newspaper content originally collected by Hoover curators and later cataloged, organized, and stored at an offsite facility by Stanford University Libraries.”
This company deals with a variety of countries and more information on this newspaper initiative and other material is available here: eastview.com/pressreleases/rarenewspaperspr
