I’m excited to announce that we will be adding lots of new content to the North Carolina Newspapers project in the coming year. Over 100 reels of microfilm will be digitized and published online, providing an unprecedented level of access to some our state’s most important primary sources. After receiving nominations from libraries across North Carolina, we selected a range of titles that represent the broad geographic and cultural diversity of our state, and span more than a century of North Carolina history. Visit the page Newspapers Selected for Digitization, 2011-2012 for a full list of titles.
The first papers will appear online later this fall, with the majority coming throughout 2012. Stay tuned to this blog for updates and more information.
