James Mussellprovides an accessible account of the digitization of nineteenth-century newspapers and periodicals. As studying this material is essential to understand the period, he argues that we have no choice but to engage with the new digital resources that have transformed how we access the print archive.
JAMES MUSSELL is Lecturer in English at the University of Birmingham. He is the author of Science, Time and Space in the Late Nineteenth-Century Periodical Press (2007) and one of the editors of the Nineteenth-Century Serials Edition (ncse) (2008).

Editorial Reviews

"This book is aimed at digital humanities scholars and nineteenth-century specialists, but Mussell's analysis is not limited to the transmission of the nineteenth-century newspaper. Its theoretical components and practical suggestions for large-scale digitization projects will be of interest to book historians working on a variety of national and historical literatures and cultures." - Papers of the Bibliographical Society of Canada "This is a thought provoking book and many of the arguments made by the author, particularly about the design of digital resources and the importance of teaching digital literacy in the classroom are equally applicable to the digital humanities in general." - Hugh Cahill, Lambeth Palace Library, CILIP Rare Books Newsletter (95, Aug 2013)
