This presentation will provide an overview of NewspaperWorks, a plugin for Hyrax-based repository applications that provides custom ingest, management, and display functionality for digitized newspaper content. NewspaperWorks can be used to add newspapers to an existing repository, or to create a stand-alone bespoke newspaper content interface. We will cover the major features of this gem, including automated ingest of NDNP batches and PDF issues; newspaper-specific metadata modules; full-text search and highlighting; calendar-based browsing; advanced search, and more. In addition, a brief demonstration of the installation and setup process will be provided. This talk will also discuss plans for future development and how to build a community of users and contributors for the project.

Of particular interest to: Administrators, Developers, Managers, Newcomers
