The second cycle of Nevada Newspaper Digitization Project begins!

UNLV Libraries is pleased to announce the renewal of the NDNP grant which allows the UNLV Libraries to participate in a second cycle of the Newspaper Digitization Project!

The first cycle (2014-2016) was successfully completed in August 2016 and the goal of 100 000 digitized pages of local newspapers was exceeded.

The NDNP staff is eager to continue digitizing Nevada newspapers and contributing to the ultimate project goal for providing free access to historic materials that support future research. The expected goal for the second cycle (2016-2018) is another batch of 100 000 pages. Currently the Project Advisory Board is performing a title selection.

Please visit the Chronicling America website to browse the digitized newspapers from the state of Nevada.
