Paterson Evening News building – Paterson, NJ

The New Jersey Digital Newspaper Project (NJDNP) is a collaboration of the Rutgers University Libraries, the New Jersey State Archives and the New Jersey State Library. It draws upon the strengths of these three institutions. Rutgers will manage the project and provide all technical support. The New Jersey State Archives houses nearly 600 newspaper titles in microfilm and will provide digital masters and use copies for all papers to be digitized as well as manage the creation of duplicate masters. The New Jersey State Library will lead the documentation and outreach about the titles selected. At least 200,000 pages will be digitized and cataloged to specifications within the four year project time frame. We hope you follow the project’s progression with interest. Feel free to comment on our posts and provide feedback via the contact form on the tool bar. You can also subscribe to the blog by entering your email in the “Subscribe to NJDNP!” section in the left sidebar.

This project is funded by a grant for the National Digital Newspaper Program, supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
