INTERESTING LINKS: The National Digital Newspaper Program : February 13th, 2009


Happy Friday the 13th!


I’m excited to call your attention to The National Digital Newspaper Program, the first online newspaper site I’ve seen where the comics appear to be in reasonably good resolution (you could actually print these and have it look decent)… and it’s free! Thank you, gubbmint, for doing something worthwhile for once! Unfortunately, no color, but still fantastic. Check out the great comics sections from The Salt Lake Herald, for a good example. Those of you out there participating in the previously mentioned BIG FUNNY project will want to check this out for sure!

Also, here’s an index of online newspaper digitization projects.

Below: An example of Gus Mager’s Rhymo the Monk from The Salt Lake Herald, courtesy of the National Digital Newspaper Program. A WHOLE LOT more at the link.
