Abstract : Newspaper is the mirror of society. Newspaper captures day to day life of a community and its citizens. Under the headlines proclaiming great events are editorials, human interest stories, society news, sports reporting, advice columns, obituaries, and business reports that as a whole tell the life story of the communities in which those great events take place and the lives they affect. This is a valuable resource for scholars and researchers for future resources. If newspaper is not preserved then no one can access information in future. This paper gives procedures for preserving newspaper, and various tools and software that Times Group is using for preservation of their publications.
