Digitizing 100,000 pages of Nebraska newspaper titles, 1880 to 1910, scanned from 150 reels of microfilm created by the United States Newspaper Project that document the history and culture of Nebraska.

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln and its partner, the Nebraska State Historical Society, propose to digitize an estimated 100,000 pages of Nebraska newspapers dating from 1880 to 1910 as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program at the Library of Congress. The project will be completed over a two year period. Newspapers selected for digitization will be of significant research value, represent a range of geographic areas and genres, and cover the time period as fully as possible. Digitization will include imaging, text conversion, metadata creation, and XML mark-up following guidelines provided by the Library of Congress. Digitization will be done by iArchives. Management of the project and quality control steps will be conducted by he University of Nebraska-Lincoln Libraries; copies of the newspaper microfilm will be provided by the Nebraska State Historical Society; and selection will be conducted and monitored by an advisory board of scholars, teachers, librarians, and editors.
