Tennessee Digital Newspaper Project, Phase One

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Tennessee's microfilmed newspapers, dating from 1836-1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The University of Tennessee proposes to digitize approximately 100,000 pages of newspapers published in Tennessee between 1836 and 1922. The digitization will be from 2nd generation negative microfilm. The masters of the film are owned by the Tennessee State Library and Archives which is a partner in the project. Digitization and metadata creation will be performed by a vendor chosen by RFP after the grant is awarded. We will follow all the technical specifications outlined by the Library of Congress following the time line included in the proposal narrative. The selection of titles to be digitized will be made by a distinguished Advisory Committee with membership from various prospective user groups and who represent the 3 Grand Divisions of the State. The newspapers chosen for this grant will also represent each of these Divisions.
