New York State Digital Newspaper Project: Phase One

Digitization of 100,000 pages of New York newspapers, dating from 1900 to 1910, as part of the test bed for the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The New York Public Library requests $499,911 to create digital access to historical New York State newspapers. Since 1725, when the first newspaper in New York was launched, the State has played a seminal role in the development of newspaper publishing. Issues from 1900 to 1910, drawn from NYPL’s extensive newspaper holdings, will be digitized from microform, creating image files, OCR text, and metadata for 100,000 pages. Priority titles have been identified. The Library’s Preservation and Digital Library Program staff will develop systems to organize, link, and ensure the quality of the digital materials. Partnering with Cornell University Library, NYPL will be able to contribute extensive technical expertise to the national NDNP effort.
