“This is a day to celebrate the availability of an exciting new resource for Las Vegas history,” said Cory Lampert, head of UNLV Digital Collections and the co-principal investigator on the project. “These newspapers serve as a first draft of history for Las Vegas and are an essential tool for many researchers and history buffs who want to take a deep dive into the early days of our city.”
Previously, only microfilm versions of the newspapers were available for researchers to peruse at either UNLV’s Lied Library or the Nevada State Museum.
