Digitizing Kenyan Newspapers...

Very interesting, worthwhile and ambitious project. Thousands of newspaper articles digitized (this is before Nation and Standard went online). In their own words, "As of Thu Mar 5 2009, the database incorporates 26623 indexed articles from 1986 to 2002..."

The computer-based index is being mounted on the website, The database will be updated on a regular basis. "In this way, it is hoped that the details of the newspaper articles will reach research scholars, journalists, students and teachers, practitioners in various fields, and the general public."
