ISRAELIS DIGITISE GUARDIAN
LAST SATURDAY, The Guardian launched its online searchable digital archive.
By early 2008 the archive will contain digitised pages of every edition of The Observer from 1791 and The Guardian from 1821.
It is interesting to note that the paper — which is not known for its pro-Zionist leanings — has entrusted the Olive Software company, whose research and development office is in Israel, to digitise the content.
Reportedly, 70 per cent of digitised newspaper users are academics. Obviously not those in favour of boycotting Israel, then.
