Arizona Digital Newspaper Project

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Arizona newspapers, published prior to 1963, as part of the state’s continuing participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records in partnership with the University of Arizona Libraries requests $291,018 to select, digitize and make available to the Library of Congress 100,000 historic newspaper pages. Approximately one quarter of these pages will increase racial, ethnic, and linguistic representation in the Arizona newspapers digitized for Chronicling America. Other goals include expansion of the digitization of newspapers published along the Arizona-Mexico borderlands; broadening the inclusion of newspapers published in mining and agricultural communities; and exploring Arizona’s history as seen through its newspapers in the context of the National Endowment for the Humanities’ (NEH) initiative “A More Perfect Union.”
