Launching an International Digital Ephemera Initiative

Increasingly, the day-to-day reality of current events in the Middle East is documented not in the pages of printed newspapers, but through Facebook postings, tweets, Smartphone photos, and other informal ephemera material. The UCLA Library received a $3.4 million grant to digitize, preserve, and provide broad public access to print items, images, multimedia, and social networking resources produced in the Middle East, to offer primary sources to students and scholars. Mr. Strong discusses the challenges and opportunities in working with new forms of social media and other primary sources in real time and with international partners including the National Library of Israel.

Presented by Gary Strong at the 2012 AJL Conference in Pasadena, CA.
