Other Abstract

Newspapers can preserve vast amount of first-hand historical information for research. They are reliable and valuable primary sources for studies on politics, economy, society, humanities, science and technology, culture, folkways and customs of a country for a specific period of history. Accordingly, these authors in this paper support that a Chinese Newspaper Digital Repository (CNDR) initiative led by National Library of China (NLC) be firmly established and put into operation in quick order. These authors’ conviction and assertion are made only after they have given a careful study and analysis of the problems of current newspaper preservation methods, including print newspapers preservation, preserving newspapers by microfilming technology, and digital publication of newspapers. These authors also have taken into consideration of the legal issues involved about such an undertaking. Based on the review of the efforts and achievements on long-term preservation of newspapers home and abroad, these authors have critiqued the technical scheme of the NLC’ Chinese Newspaper Digital Repository, including such important factors as system design, metadata schema, system structure, and the achievements of this project in Phase I. Finally, these authors have recommended that a collaborative operation mechanism and also a new comprehensive service paradigm in the realm of information delivery be established in CNDR’s overall strategic planning.
