First cycle (2014-2016)

During the first grant cycle (2014-2016) the NDNP staff (thanks Dana Bullinger and Melissa Stoner!) processed and digitized over 100 000 pages of Nevada newspapers representing different counties across the state. Here we provide a list with all the titles which are freely accessible on the official project website Chronicling America. You may also find brief information about each title in the short essays that summarize the most important facts about each newspaper.

Throughout the years most newspapers changed their titles multiple times and this may lead the contemporary reader to confusion. The newspaper essays aim to clarify that by providing succinct information about the title changes and the history of the newspapers. In addition to them, we have created graphics that visualize the title changes which you can find in the Title Changes page.
