Welsh Newspapers and Magazines Online

The Welsh Assembly Government announced yesterday its SCIF grant of £2m to the National Library for a project entitled ‘Welsh Newspapers and Magazines Online’.

This is a three-year project to digitise a high proportion of all out-of-copyright Welsh newspapers and publish the resulting text online for all to search, browse and reuse for free. WHELF and Welsh HEIs in general supported the bid to SCIF (the Strategic Capital Investment Fund).
