Indiana Digital Newspaper Project, Phase One

Digitization of 100,000 pages of historic Indiana newspapers published between 1836 and 1922 as part of the state's participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

This project will digitize and make available to the National Digital Newspaper Program approximately 100,000 pages of historic Indiana newspapers published between 1836 and 1922. Digitization will be from second-generation silver negative print master microfilm created for the project from first-generation silver negative camera masters owned by the Indiana State Library or the Indiana Historical Society. Products of this grant project include: uncompressed TIFF page images, derivative JPEG2000 images, derivative PDF files, OCR text files, and structured metadata. An historical essay will be created for every newspaper title along with updated CONSER-level MARC cataloging records. Digitization of these newspapers will allow important elements of Indiana's rich history to be more available to researchers.
