Since its original survey of newspaper digitisation projects, the Europeana Newspapers (http://www.europeana-newspapers.eu/) project has received more requests from libraries that did not manage to submit details first time around.

Therefore, the survey has been opened up (May 2013) again to allow other libraries to enter details of their digitised newspaper collection. The results of the first survey are at http://www.europeana-newspapers.eu/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/D4.1-Europeana-newspapers-survey-report.pdf (pdf)

Please reply by 31st July 2013.

Many thanks !
