Arizona Digital Newspaper Project, Phase One

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Arizona newspapers, dating from 1880 to 1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records, (ASLAPR) leading a statewide collaboration, will digitize approximately 50 Arizona newspaper titles, 1880-1912, and make them available to the National Digital Newspaper Project. These years are especially significant in Arizona history because they document the three decades that immediately precede Statehood on February, 12, 1912. ASLAPR is a lead agency planning the Arizona Centennial, and this digitization project can contribute directly to Arizonans' understanding and appreciation of their state's history. Digitization will follow Library of Congress specifications as outlined in the NDNP Technical Guidelines. ASLAPR will also make the information available on its own website.
