Vermont Digital Newspaper Project Video

Last summer I had the opportunity of working with Tom McMurdo and Sally Blanchard from the Vermont Digital Newspaper Project (VTDNP) to produce a short video that demonstrates how researchers use historical newspapers, talks about the digitization process at the VTDNP, and about how digital newspaper collections are made in general.

The video features History faculty member, Abby McGowan, former History student, Justin Baldassare, and Sylvia Bugbee, researcher and Reference Specialist in Special Collections.

 

To date, the VTDNP has digitized over 130,000 pages of Vermont newspapers which can be accessed through the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America site and the project recently received funding to continue work through 2014.
