Small market and community newspaper publishers have a fresh new revenue generator at their disposal – and it’s working, helping publishers generate enough money to pay to digitize their bound volume archives.
To try it, just contact Discover America’s Story (you can email firstname.lastname@example.org) and schedule your first archive scanning shipment. Then you’ll have the digital archive to show to businesses in your community – businesses you’ll ask to sponsor your historical preservation project. Discover America’s Story even provides no-cost support to the newspapers to help reach out to sponsors.
- Publishers set their own sponsorship rates and all revenue is theirs to keep.
- Publishers retain all ownership and control of the newly-created digital archive.
- Publishers scan the bound volumes at their own pace so it’s never overwhelming.
It’s that easy. Publishers can contact Discover America’s Story to start their first shipment today.
