I've no tips on the digital side of things, but in case it's useful here are some things to think about on the paper side:
- newspaper is very cheap and acidic (this is why it goes yellow and crumbly as it gets older)
- it's therefore best if you glue it to non-acidic archival paper, rather than just standard printer paper
- it also helps to preserve it if you keep it in stable conditions, eg keeping it in a box (stable microclimate) in a cool place out of direct sunlight, maybe with some silica sachets to keep it dry
- PVA is probably the most convenient useful glue to use, unless you feel like making your own from flour and water (not very difficult, and you can freeze it in small batches)
- if you're feeling really keen, you could wash the newspaper in a slightly alkaline solution first: float it carefully in a flat pan of liquid, then dry flat. If you want to try this, let me know: I've got some magic non-stick stuff that you can lay it on to dry that I can post you!
