CO Newspaper Project Soars

By LJ Staff

The Colorado Association of Libraries selected the Colorado Historic Newspaper Digital Project, managed by  Brenda Bailey-Hainer, as the state’s Outstanding Library Technology Project. Funded by an Institute of Museum and Library Services National Leadership Grant, the project, which serves as the basis for a state historic newspaper database, includes full-text indexing of all articles, graphics, letters to the editor, and advertising. Articles can be viewed individually or in page context. The project is being conducted by the Colorado State Library in tandem with the Colorado Historical Society.
