Connecticut Digital Newspaper Project

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Connecticut newspapers, dating from 1836 to 1922, as part of the state's participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

From 2019-2021, the CT State Library will digitize an additional 110,000 pages of newspapers, with the support of the CT and Litchfield historical societies, Yale Univ., Bridgeport and Putnam libraries, who will lend film. We request $263,921 from NEH and will contribute 35.6% in cost share. The Advisory Board would like to select newspapers from the early 19th century and 1930-40 and will narrow the choices after the film is inspected and copyright checked. The Board includes 2 historians, an academic/journalist, state archivist, librarian, educator, and humanities representative and will not consider their own research interests but the wider needs of the project. Staff will follow LOC’s Technical Guidelines for quality review and deliver digital files, metadata, updated MARC records and duplicate negatives to LOC for access in Chronicling America and will do outreach to new and established audiences.
