Wyoming Digital Newspaper Project

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Wyoming newspapers, dating from 1863 to 1963, as part of the state’s participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The University of Wyoming Libraries requests $208,713 from the NEH over a two-year period to digitize 100,000 pages of Wyoming’s microfilmed newspapers for the Wyoming Digital Newspaper Project. The Wyoming Digital Newspaper Project seeks to partner with the Wyoming State Archives to digitize selected titles from established newspaper holdings. The purpose of the project is twofold: to preserve and duplicate existing microfilm, and to increase accessibility. Known as the “Equality State,” Wyoming is located at the headwaters of four major U.S. river basins with a rich and notable history. Wyoming was the first state that gave women the right to vote, and the first state to elect a woman governor. Alongside these firsts were the Union Pacific Railroad’s scouting and establishment and the Johnson County War. A digitized collection of papers covering these western histories and more will provide an invaluable resource for researchers throughout the world.

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.
