CAMP microfilming of Liberian newspapers

Center for Research Libraries - Global Resources Network

 

CAMP has microfilmed issues of seven Liberian newspaper titles from the holdings of Michigan State University.  Michigan State has been committed to acquiring Liberian newspapers for many years, and CAMP has allocated funding on several occasions for the preservation of batches of newspapers from this collection.  CAMP efforts have resulted in a collection that is unique in North America and will now be available on microfilm to CAMP and CRL members.

The newspapers microfilmed by CAMP cover this turbulent time in Liberia from a variety of perspectives:

Daily Times  (January 1997 – February 2001)

Front Page  (November 2009 – December 2011)

In Profile  (November 2008 – December 2011)

Insight  (June 2010 – December 2011)

New Dawn  (January 2010 – December 2011)

New Republic  (July 2009 – December 2011)

New Vision  (April 2005 – December 2011)

This set of titles was approved in November 2012 by CAMP members.  At its November 2013 meeting in Baltimore, CAMP members voted to fund the microfilming of 13 additional Liberian newspaper titles collected by Michigan State.
