North Dakota Digital Newspaper Project, Phase One

The digitization of 100,000 pages of North Dakota newspapers dating from 1864 to 1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The State Historical Society of North Dakota requests $370,970 to digitize 100,000 pages of historic North Dakota newspapers, as part of the NEH NDNP. The project will run from Sept 2011 - Aug 2013. The SHSND will transfer to the Library of Congress all digital files, essays, required metadata and duplicate microfilm, per the specifications of the grant. The SHSND holds the largest collection of North Dakota newspapers spanning the period from the early Territorial days to the present. The SHSND goal is to expand upon the U.S. Newspaper Project's preservation microfilming and cataloging by making select titles available to the public on the Chronicling America web site. An Advisory Board will select significant titles fitting the NDNP criteria from SHSND microfilm masters. The Minnesota Historical Society as project partner will produce print masters, review microfilm, collect metadata, and create and deliver digital files and duplicate microfilm to the Library of Congress.
