The Cebuano Studies Center launched its Nueva Fuerza online archive last August 31, 2017 at Rigney Hall in University of San Carlos Talamban Campus.
The online archive is the product of the Shared Future Project: Enhancement of the Cebuano Studies Center, sponsored by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA). The project was an envisioned collaborative project to digitize and provide an open-access collection of one of Cebu’s oldest newspapers. The online archive initially features digitized copies of Bag-ong Kusog from 1921 until 1926.
Scholars and students can now enjoy continued access to historical facts, cultural information and literary works through the online archive, which will also preserve the paper for the future generation.
Although access is free, users need to register before they can browse the archive. Dr. Hope Sabanpan-Yu, Director of the Cebuano Studies Center, says that the registration enables the Center to monitor the use of the archive and the nature of the users needs. The information will be used to improve the online system.
