Vermont Digital Newspaper Project, Phase One

Digitization of 90,000 pages of Vermont newspapers, dating from 1836 to 1922, as part of the state's participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

Upon approval of this proposal, the Vermont Digital Newspaper Project (VTDNP) will endeavor to select and digitize from previously produced microfilm, 90,000 pages of historical Vermont newspapers as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program. The selected titles will represent a balanced geographic cross-section of the state in English and will cover the time period from 1836 to 1922 that are held in the collections of the Vermont Department of Libraries and at the University of Vermont. The digitized newspapers will be made freely available to the public via the Library of Congress' Chronicling America database (http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/newspapers/).
