Newspaper digitization, an LAC opportunity

Brightsolid, holding company for Findmypast.co.uk and other genealogy properties, is featured in an interview Lisa Louise Cooke of the GenealogyGems TV podcast did with Chris van der Kuyl, company CEO, at the recent RootsTech conference.

Toward the end he mentions the newspaper digitization project the company has with the British Library, and that they are looking for opportunities in the USA.  Hopefully they won't overlook opportunities in Canada where Library and Archives Canada doesn't appear to be making noticeable progress on Canadian newspaper digitization. The LAC pathfinder on newspapers does recognize collaborative arrangements as an option for their newspaper digitization.
