Minnesota Digital Newspaper Project: Phase One

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Minnesota newspapers dating from 1880 to 1910 as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The Minnesota Historical Society requests $199,108 to digitize 100,000 pages of Minnesota newspapers from the period 1880-1910, as part of the National Endowment for the Humanities? National Digital Newspaper Project. The project will take two years, from July 2007-June 2009. 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 Society holds the largest collection of Minnesota newspapers of any repository, represented by over 4000 titles. The collection is especially important because of Minnesota?s role as a cultural and economic center in the Upper Midwest and its historical significance in the economic development of the entire Northwest. The Society will adhere faithfully to technical guidelines and standards of the NDNP and the Library of Congress; these will create the framework for developing the work plan.
