Innodata to Create XML Archives for ProQuest Historical Newspapers Project

Innodata Corp. ( has announced that it has entered into an agreement with Bell & Howell to provide XML digital-content services for its ProQuest Historical Newspapers project ( The project, which was announced in January, is creating an XML-based digital historical archive of full runs of national, regional, and local newspapers, beginning with U.S. papers and eventually including ones published in other countries. The agreement allows Innodata to supply the XML-conversion and digital-content services required for ProQuest Historical Newspapers. Three prominent national newspapers have already joined the project: The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and The Christian Science Monitor. (For more information, see the March 5, 2001 Weekly News Digest at and the January 15, 2001 NewsBreak at At the request of Bell & Howell, the financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Innodata will provide the services through its XML Content Factory, creating an XML-based repository of newspaper content that the companies say will support a level of functionality not present in current online newspaper products. In addition, Innodata expects to offer a host of additional services to the individual newspapers.

Jack S. Abuhoff, Innodata's president and CEO, said: "This is why we built the XML Content Factory—to be the key enabling agent for large-scale XML initiatives such as this. We have already begun an aggressive production schedule at the XML Content Factory, where we have integrated a combination of best-of-breed and proprietary tools specifically designed to meet the unique challenges that newspapers present."
