University of North Texas (Denton, TX 76203-5017)
Mark Phillips (Project Director: 01/14/2016 to present)

Texas Digital Newspaper Project, Phase Four

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Texas newspapers dating from 1836 to 1922, as part of the state's participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). 

The University of North Texas plans to digitize and make available to Chronicling America 100,000 pages of historic Texas newspapers. The selected titles will reflect the political and economic history of the state; provide coverage for major regions of the state, including most major population areas; and have a broad chronological span. Additionally, titles selected during this project will focus on non-English newspapers important to the history of Texas which, for several reasons, have been overlooked and are underrepresented in national digital newspaper holdings. Pulling on the strengths and knowledge gained in previous years as an awardee, the UNT Libraries recognize the challenges involved in an undertaking of this scope and possesses the knowledge and management skills to achieve success.
