Historical NC Newspapers Selected for Digitization
Back in August I shared news that NC would be contributing papers to the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America digitized newspaper portal. The final title selections have now been made and announced on the North Carolina Miscellany blog of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Newspapers selected will cover Buncombe, Cherokee, Chowan, Craven, Cumberland, Durham, Guilford, Henderson, Edgecombe, Mecklenburg, New Hanover, Pasquotank, Sampson, Vance, Wake, and Watauga counties.
The full list of 21 titles is on the NC Miscellany blog post. These are going to span 1836-1922 and there are sure to be many gems among their pages. All 100,000 pages planned for this phase should be online by Summer 2014. Stay tuned for more info as they start to get digitized!
