The United States Newspaper Program : Cataloging Aspects Hardback

Edited by Ruth C. Carter

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Journalism series

Description

Originally published in 1986. Here is a valuable and engaging overview of the cataloging aspects of the United States Newspaper Program, the most extensive and comprehensive original cataloging enterprise undertaken in America.

The importance of newspapers for purposes of historical research is obvious.

The USNP was a cooperative national effort among the states and the federal government to locate, catalog, and preserve on microfilm newspapers published in the United States from the eighteenth century to the present.

Running until 2007, the USNP was an essential program of preserving journalism history as well as records of historical events.

This book talks through the cataloging process in Pennsylvania as an example.
