== Publishing Historic Newspapers with NDNP tools ==
An in-depth session on publishing and working with historic newspaper content made available through the US National Digital Newspaper Program. The software behind the LC-hosted site at [http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/ chroniclingamerica.loc.gov] (python/django/mysql/solr) is available under a free/libre/open source license at [http://sourceforge.net/projects/loc-ndnp/ sourceforge]. This session will include an introduction to the program and working with the software; discussion of adding features such as linking between ChromAm at LC and other institutions publishing the same newspaper content; creating structure and submission for user edited OCR corrections; and article level viewing. This event is open to everyone - non-NDNP participants are invited to join us and learn how to work with this content and help consider how to improve the software. The schedule will include ample time for technical discussion and hacking on the software itself.
Full day (possibly preceded by NDNP-participants-only pre-pre-conference session the day before)
Contact: Karen Estlund, University of Oregon Libraries; Dan Chudnov, Library of Congress
