It’s been a busy week for VTDNP crew. On Monday, October 20, 2014, our project librarian, Erenst Anip presented at the New England Library Association (NELA) Annual Conference in Boxborough, MA (about an hour drive from Boston). There, he co-presented with Gail Hurley from the Connecticut Digital Newspaper Project (CTDNP) on NDNP to spread the word about Chronicling America to the wider New England area and hopefully other neighboring states of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, and Maine will join NDNP soon. Gail presented on an overview of NDNP grant and Erenst talked about the details of the grant.
