Digitization: NEH Releases Guidelines For 2016 National Digital Newspaper Program Grants
The guidelines were released by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) earlier this week.
From the NEH Announcement:
The National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) guidelines for 2016 are now available online [and embedded below]. The deadline for submitting proposals is January 14, 2016.
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.
A list of current participants is available here.
