Preserving the Voices of Arizona's Diverse Communities: Digitized Historical Newspapers of Arizona

by Mary Feeney on 2019-03-05T15:31:00-07:00 in News & Newspapers, History | Comments

The University of Arizona Libraries will be hosting a symposium and reception on March 29 to highlight the importance of preserving newspapers from Arizona's diverse communities.

The UA Libraries and the State of Arizona Research Library are collaborating on a National Digital Newspaper Program grant, a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Library of Congress. Through this grant, we are digitizing newspapers that reflect the diverse communities of Arizona, including African American, American Indian, and Mexican American newspapers. These digitized newspapers will be included in Chronicling America, the free and openly-accessible national newspaper database hosted by the Library of Congress.
