Generously funded by The John Randolph and Dora Haynes foundation, the Preservation and Digitization of Northeast Los Angeles Community Newspapers project (or, NELA Newspapers) is a pilot project to establish standards and procedures for a larger program to increase access to community newspapers of the area. It is a collaboration between Occidental College Special Collections and College Archives, the Eagle Rock Valley Historical Society, and the Highland Park Heritage Trust, with special contribution from the Center for Bibliographical Studies and Research at the University of California, Riverside.
This project specifically seeks to digitize a portion of a collection of Northeast LA community newspapers, and make them available on the California Digital Newspaper Collection site. To learn more about the project, please visit the NELA Newspapers blog at: cdlrsandbox.org/wordpress/nelanewspapers/. Community members are welcome to participate in the project!
