The Christian Science Monitor Joins ProQuest Historical Newspaper Project

Bell & Howell's Information and Learning unit (http://www.bellhowell.infolearning.com) and The Christian Science Monitor have announced an agreement that will bring all of the Monitor's back issues to the Web through the ProQuest online information service. The agreement allows for Bell & Howell to digitize the Monitor's archives—approximately 1 million pages—and to distribute the resulting database to educational institutions and libraries around the world.

The Christian Science Monitor digital backfile will be part of Bell & Howell's ProQuest Historical Newspapers project. Beginning with the Monitor's first issue in 1908, the database will cover the entire run of the newspaper. Monitor articles since 1980 have been available online for several years through the newspaper's Web site (http://www.csmonitor.com) and other electronic databases; the Bell & Howell project will make the page images available for the first time. In addition, Bell & Howell will continue to microfilm the paper and offer its full run in microform. The Christian Science Monitor is the third prestigious newspaper to join this project, with agreements already in place for The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal.
