The Impact of Digital Technology on Contemporary and Historic Newspapers

The papers brought together in this highly actual book are grouped around three themes.

Moreover the dynamism of online newspapers is discussed. This volume contains cutting-edge information which is indispensable for the modern newspaper librarian. Also researchers, educators and journalists may benefit from the introduction to current aspects of the important medium.
