Vermont Newspaper Project
Supplemental Survey

The Vermont Newspaper Project, a collaborative endeavor between the University of Vermont and the Vermont Department of Libraries, is part of a national effort administered by the United States Newspaper Project and funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities to preserve and provide access to the nation's newspaper resources. This survey will be used to supplement information gathered during the original planning survey of 1994.
