Arkansas Digital Newspaper Project

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Arkansas newspapers published between 1819 and 1922, as part of the state’s participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The Arkansas State Archives (ASA) proposes to select, digitize, and make available to the Library of Congress 100,000 pages of its state's historic newspapers, published from 1819-1922 as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). The ASA holds the largest concentration of microfilmed Arkansas newspapers from this period. For this project, Arkansas will partner with its neighbor institution, the Mississippi Department of Archives and History (MDAH), for technical aspects of this project. Since the MDAH has completed successfully two NDNP cycles, this collaboration will afford Arkansas an efficient, standards-based digitization process. The ASA holds 757 titles from the target period. The newspapers represent state, regional and local coverage; often represent a particular political affiliation; and cover all parts of the state, with geographical publishing patterns reflecting community and commercial development in the state.

Maine State Library (Augusta, ME 04330-6845)
Peggy O'Kane (Project Director: January 2016 to present)

Maine Digital Newspaper Project

The digitization of 100,000 pages of historic Maine newspapers published between 1836 and 1922 as part of the state’s participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The Maine Digital Newspaper Project seeks to create approximately 100,000 pages of digital newspaper content from existing microfilm master files of newspapers published in Maine between 1836 and 1922. The papers will be chosen for inclusion by an advisory board of experts in Maine history and the popular press. They will consider local and national priorities and the availability and condition of the microfilm masters in deciding on selection. The advisory board will also work with the Maine State Library (MSL) to hire a project manager and identify appropriate vendors for materials following State of Maine guidelines. The majority of the microfilm conversion will be conducted by a vendor selected under an RFP process. Conversion will also take place on equipment owned and operated by the Maine State Archives.

Colorado Digital Newspaper Project

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Colorado's historic newspapers published between 1859 and 1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

History Colorado (HC) proposes to digitize 100,000 pages of its state’s historic newspapers, 1859-1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program. From the first newspaper printed in 1859, HC’s newspaper collection tells the story of Colorado: communities that evolved from rough mining camps to thriving towns, towns that died out and became ghost towns, conflicts with Native American peoples, the spread of agriculture and ranching, labor unrest and mining, suffrage, exploration and protection of the region’s natural beauty, the discovery of oil, the development of diverse cultures, and more. For this project, HC will collaborate with the Colorado State Library (CSL), a long time partner in providing access to Colorado’s newspapers through the Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection (CHNC) website.

Alaska Digital Newspaper Project

The digitization of 100,000 pages of historic Alaska newspapers published between 1866 and 1922 as part of the state’s participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The Alaska Division of State Libraries, Archives, and Museums requests $323,748 to select, digitize, and make available to the Library of Congress 100,000 pages of Alaskan newsprint published between 1866 and 1922. The Division holds the largest and most complete collection of Alaska newspapers on microfilm in the state, with virtually all known newspaper issues in microform. Approximately three hundred and twenty unique titles with pre-1923 content are available for digitization. An Alaska Digital Newspaper Program Advisory Committee consisting of scholars, newspaper publishers, and educators will select titles. For each title selected, the Division will create an essay of approximately 500 words describing the historical significance of the newspaper; an updated CONSER-level MARC record; and title, issue, and page-level metadata. Digital Divide Data will assist in creating metadata.

University of North Texas (Denton, TX 76203-5017)
Mark Phillips (Project Director: January 2016 to present)

Texas Digital Newspaper Project, Phase Four

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

The University of North Texas plans to digitize and make available to Chronicling America 100,000 pages of historic Texas newspapers. The selected titles will reflect the political and economic history of the state; provide coverage for major regions of the state, including most major population areas; and have a broad chronological span. Additionally, titles selected during this project will focus on non-English newspapers important to the history of Texas which, for several reasons, have been overlooked and are underrepresented in national digital newspaper holdings. Pulling on the strengths and knowledge gained in previous years as an awardee, the UNT Libraries recognize the challenges involved in an undertaking of this scope and possesses the knowledge and management skills to achieve success.
