Digitizing Suburban News

A student in Bruce Leslie's public history class has emailed about this. The student has talked to the Ogden Town historian. I had talked with this local historian before, and tried to explain the process to the student. It's way more than I could support here, i.e. making the book scanner available to scan years of a local weekly. The paper should be microfilmed and then the mic could be sent out and digitized, like the Brockport Republic. I explained as simply as I could, and gave him the digital service librarian contact at RRLC
