Comment: The final score should reflect the following:
          Highest Priority - Newspaper title meets all intellectual selection criteria and the lack of inclusion of the title would constitute a serious gap in the project. Inclusion furthers
          scholarship.
          High Priority - Newspaper title meets most intellectual selection criteria. Lack of inclusion of title would be noticed, yet other titles may suffice.
          Medium Priority - Newspaper title meets some intellectual selection criteria. Lack of inclusion of the title may not be noticed because other titles provide similar coverage.
          Low Priority - Newspaper title meets few intellectual selection criteria. Inclusion of title may fill some gaps, but generally lack of inclusion would not affect scholarship.
          Not Recommended - Newspaper title does not meet intellectual selection criteria.


    Cell: H4
Comment: Research Value:
          The titles with the highest research value will inclued the following:

            -significantly reflect the political, ecomonic and cultural history of the state

            -have statewide or regional influence

            -important as a source of information about a variety of ethnic, racial, political, ecomomic, religious, or other special audiences or interest groups

            -"paper of record" at the state or county level

            -contain plblished legal notices

            -contain news of state and regional governmental affairs

            -contain announcements of community news and events, including births, deaths, and marriages


    Cell: I4
Comment: Geographic Coverage:
          Broad geographic coverage at the state or at least multi-county level of a majority of the population.

    Cell: J4
Comment: Temporal Coverage:
          Long continuous run that includes the 1880 to 1922 time frame.

    Cell: K4
Comment: Bibliographic Completeness:
          Completeness of the microfilm copy within the 1880-1922 time frame is of utmost importance. A nearly complete microfilm file, however, can be enhanced through the scanning
          of paper copies when available. Important titles with only scattered issues on microfilm will not be considered.

    Cell: L4
Comment: Orphan Titles:
          Titles of high research value that have ceased publication and lack proactive owners who are likely to invest in future digital conversion, will receive special consideration.
    Cell: M4
Comment: Diversity:
          Consider as a means to balance content with information that documents a significant minority community at the state or region level.
