The Hokubei Hochi Foundation is pleased to announce a partnership with the University of Washington (UW) Libraries on an exciting project to digitize the past issues of The North American Post newspapers. This will allow the public to access information through KEY WORD SEARCH using the latest digital technology.  4Culture has provided seed funding for this project. (www.4culture.org)


The UW Libraries Digital Initiatives Program and the Suzzallo Allen Libraries Microfilm Department are key partners in this project.  The post-WWII North American Post (Hokubei hōchi) newspaper dates back to 1946.  The pre-WWII paper up until the Japanese American internment was published under The North American Times (Hokubei jiji) beginning in 1902.  Most of the early issues of both papers are written in Japanese.


Many newspapers have been digitized for ready access for online readers, most notably, The New York Times, and locally, The Seattle Times and other news publications.  


We are currently researching and testing the approach of manually entering key words into the U.W.’s CONTENTdm data management software.  At the end of the project, content of past issues will be key word searchable and be made available online to the general public.


This project will launch a pilot sample of issues starting in 1946 with plans to publish it on the U.W. Libraries Digital Collections’ website, to be completed this summer.  The foundation is excited to produce a prototype model that can be replicated by other small community newspapers and publications across the country and indeed globally.
