Happy holidays, everyone, from the Vermont Digital Newspaper Project! May you have a warm (emphasis on warm!!), happy, and safe holiday in whatever form that may take.
Here’s to a fantastic 2014 and an even better 2015. In honor of the holiday season, we put together a small album of assorted holiday newspaper clippings from Vermont (all found on Chronicling America).
Today, October 14, 2014, marks another milestone for our project. All of the digitized newspaper pages from phase 2 are now accessible on Chronicling America, all 254,253 of them along with 15 newspaper title essays (more to come!). The last batch consist of Orleans County Monitor issues from 1908-1922.
As part of the NDNP requirement, we will send all of the duplicate negative microfilm reels of the newspaper digitized to Library of Congress for preservation and safe keeping. Here’s what it looks like before it gets packed and shipped to LC’s vault:
Now, onward with phase 3 and adding more Vermont historic content to the Internet!
