Nevada National Digital Newspaper Project

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Nevada newspapers, dating from 1836 to 1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

This application represents Nevada's initial foray into the National Endowment for the Humanities National Digital Newspaper Program. This project seeks to select, digitize, and make available 100,000 pages of historic Nevada newspapers, published between 1836 and 1922. The University of Nevada, Las Vegas University Libraries will serve as the lead institution, with project partners the Nevada State Library and Archives and the University of Nevada, Reno Knowledge Center. A Newspaper Selection Advisory Board will review and recommend which historic papers to digitize. Microfilm analysis and duplication, microfilm digitization, metadata creation, and other project activities will be carried out by a combination of local staff and outsourced services. This project seeks $311,070 in funding over the two year grant period, September 2014 through August 2016, and project partners have committed a further $168,695 as cost share toward the successful execution of this project.
