The digitization of 100,000 pages of Iowa newspapers dating from 1836 to 1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The State Historical Society of Iowa requests $326,775 to digitize 100,000 pages of Iowa newspapers from the period 1836-1922, as part of the National Endowment for the Humanities' National Digital Newspaper Project. The project will take two years, from September 2012-August 2014. At the end of the project, the Society will transfer to the Library of Congress all digital files, essays, required metadata and duplicate microfilm, per the specifications of the grant. The State Historical Society of Iowa has a deep collection of Iowa newspapers and a long history of preserving and providing access to the state’s newspapers. An Iowa Newspaper Project as part of the NDNP would offer an exciting new level of access to Iowa’s valued newspaper collection. For its NDNP project, the State Historical Society of Iowa plans to collaborate with the Minnesota Historical Society, a current NDNP awardee, who will serve as Iowa’s technical partner for the digitization process.
