Oklahoma Digital Newspaper Project, Phase One

The digitization of 100,000 pages of Oklahoma newspapers dating from 1860 to 1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The Oklahoma Historical Society (OHS), in partnership with the University of North Texas (UNT) and the Oklahoma Press Association (OPA), plan to digitize and make available 100,000 newspaper pages to the National Digital Newspaper Project. The titles selected will reflect the state's political, cultural, and economic history, span Oklahoma regionally and cover the mid-nineteenth to the early twentieth century time period. Combining the large microfilm collection of the OHS and the technical support of UNT, the partners believe that this undertaking will successfully contribute to the public's access to these regionally significant manuscripts.
