Indiana working to digitize historic newspapers

“A staff of two at the Indiana State Library is working to preserve what is left of the printed record of Indiana’s history as the yellowing, crumbling newspapers that chronicled Hoosiers’ lives deteriorate with age. “We really want, for Indiana’s bicentennial, to create a resource for all of Indiana to reflect state history as well as local history,” said Connie Rendfeld, digital initiatives librarian for the Indiana State Library. The project’s goal, as part of Indiana’s bicentennial celebrations in 2016, is to have digitized historic papers from every county in the state.” (via Munster Community News)
