Ethnic Newspapers: FL Digital News Library

Ethnic Newspapers in the Florida Digital Newspaper Library:
An Introduction and Tutorial
February FSGS Poolside Chat Webinar: Are you familiar with the African American, Jewish, Hispanic, and other ethnic newspapers in the newly created Ethnic Newspapers Database within the Florida Digital Newspaper Library at the University of Florida? This is an excellent opportunity to learn about them and to find out how to navigate this important new resource.

The new database was created thanks to a Library Services and Technology Act grant (The Florida Digital Newspaper Library: Broadening Access and Users) enabling the digitization of one of Florida’s ethnic newspapers.

There will be an overview of the newspapers within the Ethnic Newspapers Database, comprising 7,526 items with over 139,000 pages; a tutorial on how to access these materials: searching, viewing results, saving images etc.; and a Q&A session.

You must pre-register to attend:

There is no fee to attend. You will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
