UH library continuing digital newspaper project

By Associated Press

HONOLULU (AP) — Hamilton Library at the University of Hawaii is getting $140,000 from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The award will be used to convert 10 historical Hawaii newspapers from microfilm to digital form. The newspapers were published from 1880 to 1918.

The funding will enable the library to continue the Hawaii Digital Newspaper Project for this year and next year.

The effort is part of the National Digital Newspaper Project. Its goal is to convert about 100,000 English-language newspaper pages published between 1880 and 1922.

The digitized newspapers will become part of a database to be available on the Internet and permanently kept at the Library of Congress. In the end, the database will include all U.S. newspapers dating from 1836 to 1922.
