English abstract

This paper deals with Newspaper Content as a source of knowledge and how Times Archives of the Times Group has converted the 166-year span of socio-political content of “The Times of India” and the 43 year economic and business barometer “The Economic Times” into an easily accessible Archive. The value of this Archive as a Knowledge Asset lies in its potential of being recalled, researched, reused and re-expressed by the various ventures of the Group. This paper describes the process of Microfilm Archiving and Digital Archiving of a Newspaper. The advantages and disadvantages of both have been discussed.
