Description

In the summer of 2017, the Oregon Digital Newspaper Program at the University of Oregon migrated off of the Chronam software that was used in former Chronicling America newspaper digitization projects to the open source Open Online Newspaper Initiative software, or Open-ONI. This talk will outline the choice of this software, the development process, and the benefits of Open-ONI, as well as lessons learned from a small, limited-resourced development sprint. We will also cover in-house system improvements, showcase the new front-end of the website, and discuss future directions for the Program and the Open-ONI community. This talk will be relevant for developers, designers, and librarians who manage digitization production and use digitized newspaper resources.

Learning Outcomes

Attendees of this presentation will:

  • Learn about the open source Open-ONI software for digitized newspaper content

  • Walk away with lessons learned from a system migration that had a small development team and limited resources

  • Learn about the workflow improvements to the newspaper digitization program created along with the system migration

From Chronam to ONI: The Path to Self-Sufficiency in Newspaper Digitization
