This report reflects the work that leading academic libraries
in Siberia (in Tomsk, Irkutsk, and Krasnoyarsk) have been
conducting over the past ten years on digitization of Siberian newspapers
published between 1857 and 1991. These newspapers are
valuable and often unique sources for the history, ethnography,
economy, and everyday life of the Siberian people. Creating a comprehensive
and common free-access database of Siberian newspapers
promotes their preservation for current and future researchers,
introduces them to scientific use. The report contains brief data on
already digitized newspapers and on electronic sources where these
newspapers can be found. The report shows the challenges, perspectives,
and achievements of digitization, as well as possible ways
of systematization, search for information and analysis of a large set
of various newspaper texts.
