Local history collections provide us with a historical, cultural, political and demographic overview of a group of people during a certain period in time. The specific features of Istria were created through the frequent changes in government and linguistic context that it experienced. Ever since Gutenberg’s invention of the printing press all the way to present day, the need for disseminating information has been growing and developing, though today we use different media – whether printed or electronic. As the centres of the spheres of culture, information and the media, libraries, in addition to their collections of books, also collect, safeguard and process local history collections, while bestowing particular attention on their protection and storage. With the evolution of digital media and new ways of disseminating information, the need has arisen for digitalising all collections, and thus also those pertaining to local history – not merely to protect the materials contained within from the adverse effects of the elements or from manipulation, but also to revitalise the collections themselves and promote them. The project of the University Library in Pula titled Istrian Newspapers Online (The INO Project) presents a new method of promoting, protecting and digitalising old Istrian newspapers that were published during an exceptionally tumultuous period in Istria’s history – one marked not only by frequent changes in government, but also in linguistic codes. It ought to be stressed that the project is also developing to include magazines and school yearbooks, which is bound to evoke the interest of not only researchers and historians, but also the public at large. Recently, many libraries around the world have done likewise, and towards the same aim: both to protect the treasures that they have been safekeeping and to present them to users, as they reflect the past of our region and the past of our ancestors.
