interview with Paul LeClerc in New York Times

Paul LeClerc, director of the New York Public Library, answered questions online at the New York Times that have been made available in three parts: part one, part two, part three. Topics include budgets, branch closures and renovations, ebooks, and preservation efforts.

In part two, he briefly mentioned their participation in the Library of Congress National Digital Newspaper Project and its public access content web site Chronicling America. It was nice to see this project mentioned get a media mention in the context of preserving and providing access to often ephemeral newspapers.
