"In this project, we are creating and releasing an open data collection framework and methodology for information about newspapers by and for marginalized communities. We are also producing and releasing (openly and freely) two datasets: a digital directory of African American newspapers and a digital directory of LGBT newspapers. Finally, we are producing a synthesis of the project’s findings and recommendations for next steps, including priorities for aggregation and other tasks DPLA might undertake in the future to increase access to these crucial historical sources."
