Need some info/advice: Archiving News Articles...

Ok, as probably EVERYONE is doing, i am wanting to preserve the Sun Sentinel front page from Sunday's paper with Howard and Rusty…also, the sports section as well…

Would do the palm beach post too, but we all know that they decided it was more important to feature a 100 year old highschool football story, coupled with a large color picture of the west virginia players sulking…only to give FAU a tiny little box at the bottom of the front page…unbelievable, but that is another issue…back to the task at hand:

Would GREATLY appreciate any advice, or direction as to how to preserve these pages and also if anyone has any ideas as to how they will frame/preserve thiers - as this is a first for me…i am open to possibly having it professionally done as well…dependant on price…

If anyone has any info or ideas, please share…thanks!!

Call the FAU Library Archive section and ask how they would do it.

Call the Sentinel or email hutton and ask about getting them on PDF, that way you can save them on disk.

By the way, speaking from experience of working there. The PB Post is heavy on the Gators for some reason (maybe because most of them that work there are Gator alums?).

If you want to get it done professionally you can probably go to Field of Dreams in the Town Center. Bring them the front cover and tell them you want it framed. They will probably laminate it and frame it for you. May be hundred bucks or so. You should PM Nunzio 42 for more info. He used to work there he would know a lot more about it then me

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

No their response would probably be "We have a football team" ?
