Digitization of 100,000 pages of Connecticut newspapers published prior to 1963, as part of the state’s continuing participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). This phase would focus on papers from the early nineteenth century, a Polish newspaper, and papers covering Hartford during the 1940s and ’50s.

The Connecticut State Library will digitize 100,000 pages of historic Connecticut newspapers, focusing on political, economic, and social change in Connecticut in the early 19th century, the Polish immigrant community in New Britain, and suburbanization in the greater Hartford region in the 1940s and 1950s. Project staff will follow the Library of Congress's Technical Guidelines for quality review and deliver digital files, metadata, updated MARC records, and duplicates to the Library of Congress for access in Chronicling America.

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Connecticut newspapers, dating from 1836 to 1922, as part of the state's participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

From 2019-2021, the CT State Library will digitize an additional 110,000 pages of newspapers, with the support of the CT and Litchfield historical societies, Yale Univ., Bridgeport and Putnam libraries, who will lend film. We request $263,921 from NEH and will contribute 35.6% in cost share. The Advisory Board would like to select newspapers from the early 19th century and 1930-40 and will narrow the choices after the film is inspected and copyright checked. The Board includes 2 historians, an academic/journalist, state archivist, librarian, educator, and humanities representative and will not consider their own research interests but the wider needs of the project. Staff will follow LOC’s Technical Guidelines for quality review and deliver digital files, metadata, updated MARC records and duplicate negatives to LOC for access in Chronicling America and will do outreach to new and established audiences.

Fifteen digitization day events across the entire state of Connecticut to collect materials related to the state and its population’s involvement in the First World War.  The state played a role in the war effort from the beginning as a major manufacturing hub for firearms and as the home of the U.S. Navy’s first submarine base.  The applicant also notes that this history represents diverse communities, as many African Americans from the South and European immigrants came to work in the factories.  Digitized items would be housed in the Connecticut Digital Library, which is also a hub for the Digital Public Library of America. Along with the digitization days, public events would include lectures related to Connecticut and World War I, with a focus on the particular communities in which the events are held.

This  project is based on the commemoration of the First World War. Working with partners across the state, the State Library will conduct Digitization Day events to surface privately held photos, letters and keepsakes that tell the stories of individual men and women who served during the war. These objects and stories are often held by children of WWI veterans and are in danger of disappearing, as younger generations no longer have ties to the people and events associated with these objects. Through digitization we will preserve them for generations to come.
