University of Alabama (Tuscaloosa, AL 35487-0001)
Lorraine Madway (Project Director: January 2018 to present)
Alabama Digital Newspaper Project

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Alabama newspapers published between 1813 and 1922 as part of the state’s participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program.

The University of Alabama Libraries Special Collections (UALSC) proposes to select, digitize, and make available to the Library of Congress 100,000 pages of its state’s historic newspapers, published between 1813 and 1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). UALSC holds microfilm copies of a substantial quantity of Alabama newspapers from this period representing a wide geographic range and culturally significant perspectives. UALSC proposes to work with a designated outside vendor for technical aspects of the project, and this collaboration will afford the project an efficient, standards-based digitization process. UALSC is committed to ensuring preservation of and access to the state’s historical newspapers. The NDNP and Chronicling America will provide a new level of access for this valuable component of Alabama’s documentary heritage.
