Directories for Publications by Marginalized Communities Will Soon Debut

The Educopia Institute and the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) are working on digital directories for African-American and LGBT+ newspapers and periodicals that are in print, microfilm, and digital formats. “In this project, we are creating and releasing an open data collection framework and methodology for information about newspapers by and for marginalized communities,” according to the Educopia Institute. The datasets for the directories will be openly available, and the organizations will release the project’s findings and recommendations for next steps.

“To succeed, we need participation from libraries, archives, and museums of all sizes, types, and statures. Whether you have one page or full runs, your content matters and needs to be represented.” The data-gathering phase with these institutions will end on Sept. 30, 2017.
