California Digital Newspaper Project: Phase One

Digitization of 150,000 pages of California newspapers dating from 1900 to 1910, as part of the test bed for the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The decade of 1900-1910 was a critical turning point in the history of California and one rich in economic, political and social development that are landmarks both in the history of the state and the nation. The Center for Bibliographical Studies and Research (CBSR) is in a strong position to represent California in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). There are hundreds of California newspapers on microfilm for 1900-1910 that are available to the CBSR for digitization. The CBSR plans to provide 200,000 pages of California newspapers to the NDNP.
