I recently had an opportunity to sit and talk with Clark Stiles of the National Library of New Zealand. He described a fascinating project: digitizing newspapers in New Zealand as part of the ongoing project, Papers Past. This project has been underway for eight years and is digitizing 42 newspapers and four periodicals from 1839 through 1920.
Roots Television kindly videotaped our conversation and has now placed that video online at: http://www.rootstelevision.com/players/player_conferences3.php?bctid=13752871001&bclid=10538975001.
