Funding: NEH Releases Guidelines for 2017 National Digital Newspaper Program Awards
From the Library of Congress:
The National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) grant guidelines for 2017 are now available at http://www.neh.gov/grants/
preservation/national-digital- newspaper-program. The deadline for submitting proposals is January 12, 2017.
Program awardees participate in the creation of a national, digital resource of historically-significant public domain newspapers published in U.S. states and territories. This program is jointly sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Library of Congress (LC). Each award supports a 2-year project to digitally convert 100,000 newspaper pages from that state’s collections for contribution to the Chronicling America website, maintained by the LC.
For a list of current participants, see http://www.loc.gov/ndnp/
