MEMP recently completed microfilming of CRL’s holdings of several newspapers published in Turkey. The newspapers microfilmed are from the late 1940s through the mid-’50s. MEMP’s preservation of these Turkish newspaper titles was planned to complement the Library of Congress microfilming of holdings of these titles in other time periods.

This project produced 138 reels of microfilm and has been in progress for over fifteen years. MEMP has allocated funding annually for the preservation of these titles:

CRL appreciates the investment and longstanding effort made by MEMP to preserve these important primary source materials. By making these newspapers available from CRL, the MEMP Turkish Newspaper Preservation Project benefits scholars throughout North America.
