Florida and Puerto Rico Digital Newspaper Project

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

The University of Florida (UF) in partnership with the University of Puerto Rico (UPR) requests $343,850 (with $106,984 in combined contributed cost share from both institutions) to select, digitize, and make available to the Library of Congress 100,000 newspaper pages through the National Digital Newspaper Project (NDNP). Approximately half of the pages will come from historic Florida papers (1836-1922) and the remaining half from newspapers published in Puerto Rico (1836-1922). The project builds on previous NEH/NDNP newspaper digitization grant awards received by the George A. Smathers Libraries at UF and NEH funding for microfilming Puerto Rico newspapers received by UPR-Rio Piedras Campus (UPR-RP).
