The Sami Press Archive

Research project The Sami Press Archive has been collected at Vilhelmina Community Library, where it was kept for many years. The material, consisting of almost 70,000 rticles, risked to be damaged, why a rescue acitivity was important. The archive include a variety of texts, with everything from scientific aticles to weekly magazines. CeSam was successful in finding project support for an ordinary scanning of the texts, even if a OCR-scanning would had been better. The entire archive covers the years from 1966 to 2002 and is today accessable at the internet for research purposes.
