summary Concentra Media and its newspaper Het Belang van Limburg celebrated their 125th anniversary in 2004. As Het Belang van Limburg was never archived on microfilm, the company decided to digitalize the editions of 125 years that were available in 620 bound books and counted for 520.000 newspaper-pages going back to 1879, to avoid a further deterioration of the unique copies while using them for searches. Concentra Media found a technical partner in its former 100 % subsidiary Host-It [now Cegeka], together with a Dutch partner X-Cago.
