[LIBRARY] Library of Congress Representative to Host Public Program in Indianapolis

Entry Description
INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana State Library will host a public program on Friday, July 13 featuring Ms. Deborah Thomas, the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) coordinator for the Library of Congress. Ms. Thomas will discuss the Chronicling America website and the importance of digitizing and preserving historic newspapers published in Indiana.  The presentation will take place at the State Library at 315 West Ohio Street, Indianapolis, in the History Reference Room from 10:30 AM to noon (EDT).  

Indiana is one of twenty-nine states currently participating in the NDNP program. The Indiana State Library, in partnership with the Indiana Historical Society, is digitizing a selection of Indiana’s historically significant newspapers as part of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) NDNP grant. Newspapers digitized as part of this two-year project will be included in the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America database (http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov). 

Chronicling America is a website that provides access to information about historic newspapers and select digitized newspaper pages, and is produced by the NDNP. The NDNP, a partnership between the NEH and the Library of Congress, is a long-term effort to develop an Internet-based, searchable database of U.S. newspapers with descriptive information and select digitization of historic pages. Supported by NEH, this rich digital resource will be developed and permanently maintained at the Library of Congress.

This program is worth two (2) Technology Library Education Units toward public librarian certification. Please contact Indiana NDNP project manager Chris Ittenbach at cittenbach@library.in.gov or (317) 234-8153 if you are interested in attending or for more information about the program.
