From the National Endowment for the Humanities (via Chronicling America Feed):
The National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) guidelines for 2014 are now available. The deadline for submitting proposals is January 15, 2014.
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) is soliciting proposals from institutions wishing to participate in the NDNP. Applications are due January 15, 2014.
Program awardees participate in the creation of a national, digital resource of historically significant newspapers published between 1836 and 1922 in U.S. states and territories. Each award supports a 2-year project to digitally convert 100,000 newspaper pages from that state’s collections, primarily from microfilm negative. Titles may be printed in Danish, English, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese, Spanish or Swedish.
The program provides access to this resource through the Chronicling America web site hosted by the Library of Congress (LC).
The site currently includes more than 6.6 million newspaper pages in English, French, German, and Spanish, from more than 1100 titles digitized by institutions in 30 states.
