The Price Library of Judaica Anniversary Collection: An Introduction to a Unique Digitization Project

This presentation highlights a unique digitization project being undertaken by the Isser and Rae Price Library of Judaica at the University of Florida. The library will digitize an important collection of over 200 anniversary editions of Jewish newspapers held at the University of Florida. These jubilee issues have never been catalogued and until now have remained "hidden" from its patrons. Anniversary issues of newspaper titles contain a great deal of information about the history of the particular newspaper in question. Together, as a large and varied collection, they provide a key resource for research into the  history of the Jewish press. The presentation includes a slide show featuring images of some of the newly digitized newspapers. Particular focus is given to the Canadian issue.
