Brazilian Newspaper Diario de Pernambuc – November 1825 – September 1924 – Now Digitized

The following excerpt is from the Center for Research Libraries website:

LAMP (Latin American Materials Project) has digitized the Brazilian newspaper Diario de Pernambuco from the University of Florida’s microfilm collection. The holdings of the newspaper that were digitized include November 1825 – September 1924 and these were contained on 276 reels of microfilm.

The University of Florida is the only institution except Brazil’s Biblioteca Nacional to hold this complete set of microfilm, so it was seeing heavy use from interlibrary loan and visiting researchers.

In order to make the collection more accessible to the broader scholarly community, and also to reduce the handling of the microfilm, Richard Phillips (now retired from the University of Florida libraries) proposed that LAMP digitize this material and make it openly accessible.

Thanks to ResearchBuzz for the heads-up.
