From the Archives to Digitized: Historic Vermont Newspapers Get New Lease on Life Online

By: Taylor Dobbs | VTDigger.org

The Vermont Digital Newspaper Project last week added its first batch of digitized newspaper pages to a national database dedicated to providing searchable digital copies of historic newspapers from all over the nation.

Tom McMurdo, the project librarian for the state effort, said there are currently 25 states involved in the National Digital Newspaper Project along with Washington, D.C. Vermont’s addition last week added the database’s oldest available pages, some from 1836, the earliest year within Vermont’s range of funding.
