Nambour Chronicle & North Coast Advertiser - 0 views

  •  
    "This newspaper holds so much history and information and is a valuable resource for our community. Having it available online makes it more easily accessible for everyone," Cr Natoli said. The Nambour Chronicle was the local newspaper for the Sunshine Coast from 1903 until 1980 when the Sunshine Coast Daily was born. The Chronicle from that period no longer exists in hard copy, but its microfilm version is a valuable research resource for the history, culture and development of the region. "Unfortunately, constant usage has damaged the microfilm copies of the Chronicle, which are held in Maroochy and Caloundra libraries. It was a decision between maintaining the old films or digitising,'' Cr Natoli said.

Library CDs capture Grand Haven (MI) history - 0 views

  • Library CDs capture GH history It is now possible for Loutit District Library patrons to hear stories of what life was like in the Grand Haven area in the early 20th century in the words of local citizens. Loutit District Library received $16,314 from the Library of Michigan's Digitization for Preservation and Access grant program to preserve in digital form interviews with Grand Haven area citizens recorded by local historian Dr. David Seibold and others. The CDs can be checked out at the library. The project was developed in cooperation with the Tri-Cities Historical Museum. Museum volunteers conducted interviews from the late 1970s through the early 1900s to preserve first-hand recollections of life in the area. Very few of the people whose voices were captured on tape are still living. Among those available is an interview with Ray O'Malley, a survivor of the sinking of the Escanaba, who died recently. There are more than 100 CD-ROMs with more than 6,600 minutes of interviews. In addition, more than 50 interviews were transcribed and can be searched by keyword or printed. Each of the CD-ROMs includes historical photographs from the library's collection. Patrons can listen to the interviews and view the photographs at the library or check out a CD-ROM, which can be accessed on their personal computers. Beginning in June, these materials will be available on the library's Web site, www.loutitlilbrary.org, along with many other local history and genealogy resources.
