In January 2018 the UNLV Libraries submitted a proposal for grant renewal to continue preserving the Nevada history and to digitize another set of 100,000 pages of historic newspapers. And we have been approved for another cycle! This will bring our contribution to Chronicling America up to 300,000 historic pages from Nevada by the end of the August 2020!
The Nevada Digital Newspaper Project Advisory Board has selected the more titles to be digitized. They have ensured a broad geographic coverage of historic Nevada newspapers available online as it will cover each county in the state of Nevada.
The below are the Batch Names with the newspaper Title, years under examination for digitization, and the place of publication. Each batch contains about 10,000 newspaper pages. Batch names are used for communication purposes with Library of Congress, and of course, with the public to share status within the digitization process.
As with the previous two batches, names of the batches are names of boomtowns or mining camps. The batch names do not represent the geography of the newspaper titles contained within.
There have been title changes within almost every batch! Please see the “Title Change Page” for all information.
