Press cuttings in the University of Botswana Library

Press cuttings in the University of Botswana Library Newspapers are a useful source of research information However, without proper preservation and indexing services information from newspapers is difficult to access and use in an effective manner. Press clippings are a way out of this problem both in terms of the preservation of the newspapers and access to them, albeit on a highly selective basis. It is the contention in this paper that with proper planning, preparation and in selected subjects, access to newspaper information is enhanced through a systematic press cuttings project that is sufficiently broad‐based in terms of newspaper coverage. The paper discusses preservation concerns of keeping newspaper collections and makes some recommendations which could help other libraries intending to embark on a similar project. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Library Review Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Newspapers are a useful source of research information However, without proper preservation and indexing services information from newspapers is difficult to access and use in an effective manner. Press clippings are a way out of this problem both in terms of the preservation of the newspapers and access to them, albeit on a highly selective basis. It is the contention in this paper that with proper planning, preparation and in selected subjects, access to newspaper information is enhanced through a systematic press cuttings project that is sufficiently broad‐based in terms of newspaper coverage. The paper discusses preservation concerns of keeping newspaper collections and makes some recommendations which could help other libraries intending to embark on a similar project.
