IS­RAELIS DIGI­TISE GUARDIAN

The Jewish Chronicle - - Features -

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.
