UNLV Libraries joined the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) in 2014. For the first couple of years of the NDNP project (2014-2016) the Advisory Board selected for digitization from the public domain Nevada newspaper groups based on several very important criteria:
- Reflect the political, economic and cultural history of the state of Nevada
- Have a statewide or regional influence
- Are recognized as a “paper of record”
- Provide state or multi-county coverage of population area
- Have a broad chronological span
The first grant cycle yielded 100,000+ pages of digitized newspapers from three Nevada counties (Ormsby, Lincoln, Nye) and the second phase of the project produced another set of 100,000+ pages from five counties (Elko, Eureka, Esmeralda, Storey, Lyon). Now we are on the third cycle (2018-2020), adding another 100,000 pages and making sure all counties in Nevada have representation via papers!
The list with all digitized newspapers from the state of Nevada can be accessed here.
