Cathy Nelson Hartman (Project Director: November 2006 to present)
Texas Digital Newspaper Project: Phase One

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Texas newspapers, dating from 1880 to 1910, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The University of North Texas Libraries and its partners at the University of Texas?s Center for American History, the Texas Tech University?s Southwest Collection/Special Collections Library and the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, plan to digitize and make available to the National Digital Newspaper Project 100,000 newspaper pages. The selected titles will reflect the political, economic history of the state; provide coverage for major regions of the state, including most major population areas; and have a broad chronological span. Pulling on the strengths among us, the partnership understands the challenges involved in an undertaking of this scope, and possesses the knowledge and management skills to achieve success.
