Abstract

On-site newspaper cataloging in libraries, historical societies, newspaper publishers' offices and private collectors' homes in rural northcentral Pennsylvania created a host of challenges and rewards for project librarians of the Pennsylvania Newspaper Project. The experiences of the Penn State team in their quest to identify, inventory and catalog newspapers in a variety of unorthodox and exciting situations are shared in this article. The paper focuses on problems associated with identifying titles, linking titles, updating cataloging and gathering holdings data, and offers some solutions to those problems.
