The digitization of 100,000 pages of Kentucky newspapers dating from 1900 to 1910, as part of a test bed for the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

University of Kentucky Libraries propose to prepare 100,000 digital pages images from high quality microfilm of historic Kentucky newspapers representing the period 1900 to 1910. The project will select titles from the Libraries’ extensive holdings of Kentucky newspaper on microfilm. Approximately 450 reels of microfilm and 450,000 pages of Kentucky newsprint form the target collection for conversion into OCR’d, fully keyword searchable, digital images. Prior to conversion, the microfilm will be inspected to ensure that it conforms to quality standards. Project staff, in consultation with an Advisory Board, will select titles that represent all the geopolitical regions of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
