Microfilm reformatting of 500,000 pages of Latin American newspapers held in United States repositories, the cataloging of Latin American newspaper holdings at partner institutions, and the expansion and enhancement of a database of international newspapers.

Continuing support for the activities of the International Coalition on Newspapers (ICON). ICON is an established multi-institutional effort to increase the availability of international newspaper collections by improving both bibliographic and physical access to these resources, and to serve as a focal point for activities relating to international newspaper collection development and preservation. CRL and ICON will work with the nation's major public and academic libraries with holdings of foreign newspapers to accomplish the following: 1) Reformat in microfilm important and endangered newspapers from Latin America held in U.S. institutions; 2) Catalog Latin American newspaper holdings at partner institutions, thereby increasing the accessibility of these resources for scholars; 3) Expand and enhance the ICON database of international newspapers; and 4) Disseminate information on availability and the preservation status of Latin American newspapers.
