Florida Digital Newspaper Project: Phase One

The digitization of 120,000 pages of Florida newspapers dating from 1900 to 1910, as part of a test bed for the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

This project will digitize and make available to the National Digital Newspaper Project approximately 50 Florida newspaper titles, dating from between 1900 and 1910, representing all of Florida’s major geographic regions and localities including county seats, other major cities and selected smaller municipalities. The project targets 120,000 pages in 60,000 frames of microfilm on approximately 200 reels. Target preservation microfilms will be second-generation, silver negative print-masters generated from stored first-generation silver negative camera masters. Camera masters were created to preservation standard during the U.S. Newspaper Project: Florida grants by the University of Florida’s Preservation Department.
