    Re: eTracknewsletter Query

    Would love to have on-line access to old TFN Newsletters prior to the current set up. Any way GH could get an intern to scan the old copies and load?

    On a little critical note could we get the team scores included in the NCAA issues of the past 24 hours? Really nice to have those included and usually has been in the past.

      I believe you will find both sets in the issue with the women's results (the second one sent)

        Original question remains unanswered. How are they made in such a timely fashion?

            As gh has mentioned in the past, I think photo rights are the problem with back issues reproduced in a new format. I said that TN would have fewer photos and more info than TFN, so that would be the best choice. But if the staff is struggling to get everything out in a timely fashion, scanning roughly 15,000-20,000 pages over 50 years of circulation and then combing through to delete photos really isn't feasible.

              Bid it out to some enterprising youth to do the heavy lifting and get a cut of the huge revenues it will most certainly reap . . . :twisted:

                There's a greater chance that some of the existing online inventory of PDFs will disappear than older ones becoming available.

                    it can't serve up PDFs that are no longer there to be uploaded.

                      www.archive.org definitely saves PDFs. However, one must log into TaFN to get to the newsletters, so they are likely not archived at all.

                        If, for some reason, T&FN decided to abandon their archives, could they not be made available (for some fee) to another good home?
