UT has received another boost to its efforts to preserve state history. The National Endowment for the Humanities has awarded $345,000 to the UT Libraries for phase three of the Tennessee Newspaper Digitization Project.
The TNDP will digitize another 100,000 pages of Tennessee’s microfilmed newspapers dating from the late 19th century to 1922. Since the project began in 2010, the UT Libraries, working in partnership with the Tennessee State Library and Archives, has digitized 200,000 pages from Tennessee newspapers dating back to 1849.
The project is part of the National Digital Newspaper Program, a partnership between NEH and the Library of Congress, which is creating an online digital archive of historically significant newspapers published in the United States between 1836 and 1922.
