Tech Talks Presentation by Ann Howington, June 11, 2008


In this Tech Talk, Program Coordinator Ann Howington provides an overview of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).  Participation in the NDNP expands the Digital Projects Unit into the area of newspaper digitization. The program will create a national, digital resource of historically significant newspapers published between 1836 and 1922. Texas is one of eight states participating in the NDNP for this second cycle. The content will be available on the Chronicling America Web site and the Portal to Texas History.

UNT Digital Projects is also launching the Texas Digital Newspaper Program to similarly digitize Texas' s newspaper titles that are not part of the national program.  These will be available on the Portal to Texas History.
