Digital Preservation of Early 20th Century Endangered Newspapers from the Caribbean Coast and Major Cities of Nicaragua (EAP1371)

Aims and objectives

The project entails digitising, cataloging and indexing 4,938 items from 19 Nicaraguan newspapers, published during the first half of the 20th century on the Caribbean Coast and in Nicaragua’s main cities. These are part of the permanent collection of the IHNCA-UCA. The university has made great efforts to preserve and disseminate the present material. Nonetheless, severe financial constraints impact these efforts long-term. With the support of the EAP, once this collection of newspapers is digitised and made available online, we may ensure these invaluable documents are preserved, making them available for international researchers, contributing to the development of critical studies and analyses of Nicaraguan history and society.
