The project gets rolling

collation-started

We are very excited to announce that the second cycle of the Nevada Digital Newspaper Project officially gets rolling!

Our project staff started collating the first batch of newspapers. Currently we are working on Weekly Elko Independent which is part of Elko Independent.

Elko Independent started its  publication in 1869 in the new railroad town of Elko, Nev. as a democratic newspaper. It changed its title throughout the years to Weekly Elko Independent (1872-1887), Weekly Independent (1887-1914) and Daily Independent which in 1915 was renamed back to its original title Elko Independent.
