Libraries at University of Nebraska-Lincoln


Document Type



Newspapers are still the most iconic outlet for news and other types of written communication. Newspapers record, print, and publish stories of events that are of importance to society at any given time. They are authoritative and credible records of the significant issues and events as and when they occurred. Nigerian university libraries should initiate strategies for preservation and increased access to Nigerian newspapers through appropriate planning, microfilming, digitization, abstracting and indexing through the and use of skilled labor. In terms of cooperation and collaboration, Scandia and Farmington Plans should be adopted and adapted. The International Coalition on Newspapers project should also be adopted and adapted to National Coalition on Nigerian Newspapers project.
