Marchiver is a tool to enable state of the art online print archives for newspapers, or any other type of publication.
While many publications already have their print archives digitized, they lack a customizable solution to make them available for their readers. This open-source prototype hopes to enable all publications, from local to international stages, to place their print media archives online, focusing on three essential features: visualization, text extraction and search.
This project received funding from Google's Digital News Initative in 2016.
