This volume consists of presentations at recent events of the IFLA Newspapers Section in Oslo 2005, Canberra 2005, Buenos Aires 2004, Shanghai 2004, Berlin 2003 and Cape Town 2003. It covers the variety and intensity of newspaper activities worldwide, emphasizing both regional activities and current work in the fields of the preservation and digitization of newspapers, and including reports on the ongoing US and UK projects. Another essential subject covered in this volume is the very complex issue of newspapers and copyright. This publication presents the current state of newspaper librarianship on all five continents. It reflects not only the remarkable progress made during recent years, but also the major challenges for the future.
