The 20th Century Press Archives is a collection of more than six million newspaper clippings, dating from the 19th century to 2005. They were collected by subject and cover persons, companies and commodities as well general subjects and events.
As a unique collection and part of our cultural heritage, the archives (up to 1945) have been digitalized by German National Library of Economics (ZBW) in a project funded by DFG (Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft). Now we aim to make it widely acessible for humans and machines. The technical preview at
is built of nested OAI-ORE aggregations, published as (currently static) HTML pages with embedded RDFa. Since we want to use DFG-Viewer (http://dfg-viewer.de) for viewing the actual content, we transforms the aggregations to currently quite basic METS/MODS. Our further plans include a database-driven implementation, where we want to explore ORE as a means for describing search result sets as well. 
Please feel invited to take a look at it - we would highly appreciate any feedback about our approach.
Cheers, Joachim
