Originally published in 1986. Here is a valuable and engaging
overview of the cataloging aspects of the United States Newspaper
Program, the most extensive and comprehensive original cataloging
enterprise undertaken in America. The importance of newspapers for
purposes of historical research is obvious. The USNP was a
cooperative national effort among the states and the federal
government to locate, catalog, and preserve on microfilm newspapers
published in the United States from the eighteenth century to the
present. Running until 2007, the USNP was an essential program of
preserving journalism history as well as records of historical
events. This book talks through the cataloging process in
Pennsylvania as an example.
