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.
Recently, VTDNP workspace received the rest of the microfilm reels to be digitized from our vendor. Approximately 76 reels of historic Vermont newspapers are ready to be digitized. These titles can be found on the bottom of this page. Please note that we pair master negative microfilm reel with its duplicate negative side by side. We also will add working microfilm copy (the ones stacked on top of the reels) for quality inspection.
Also, we have received the digitized files of Cronaca Sovversiva. Please scroll down to see one version of their illustrated mast heads. We’ll keep you updated when the title have been ingested into Chronicling America‘s database. Grazie!
