Arizona Digital Newspaper Project, Phase Four

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Arizona newspapers, published between 1859 and 1963, as part of the state's continuing participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records (SLAPR) will direct a statewide initiative for the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP), which is designed and implemented in collaboration with the Library of Congress (LC). Awarded previous grants from the NEH's National Digital Newspaper Program, SLAPR will continue to digitize and make available to LC Arizona newspaper titles for the Chronicling America website, as well as the Arizona Digital Newspaper Program (ADNP) and the University of Arizona Libraries’ (UAL) Historic Mexican and Mexican American Press websites. The newspapers were selected to include communities omitted or under-represented during previous cycles, such as Spanish language newspapers, American Indian community and language newspapers, African American community newspapers, religious community newspapers, and other specific ethnic communities. SLAPR is collaborating with the University of Arizona Library.
