Call for Papers: IFLA International Newspaper Conference 2014

By Mazelan Anuarhttp://vtdnp.files.wordpress.com/2013/09/ifla-newspapers-section-logo.jpg

Theme: Start Spreading the News!
Date: 4-5 February 2014
Venue: FamilySearch Headquarters, Salt Lake City, Utah

As shown by surveys conducted by the National Library of Australia, the California Digital Newspaper Collection, the Cambridge Public Library, and others, historical newspapers are an important source of information for genealogists.  Not coincidentally, the IFLA International Newspaper Conference will be held just prior to the 2014 RootsTech Family History and Technology Conference on February 6-8.  We encourage authors and conference attendees to consider attending RootsTech as well as the International Newspaper Conference.

The IFLA Newspapers Section is currently seeking papers on or about outreach and marketing strategies for using or promoting online newspaper content, text mining, users of newspaper content, and use of news content for research purposes or as primary sources for historical or contemporary themes for its upcoming United States-hosted conference.
