"The University of Delaware Library has received a $253,869 two-year grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to continue its efforts of digitizing historic Delaware newspapers as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).
Once digitized, these newspapers will be freely accessible to the general public on the Library of Congress’ searchable, full-text database, Chronicling America.
With the help of its advisory board, the Library’s Delaware Digital Newspaper Project (DDNP) team has selected the two titles it will digitize and the issue dates it will choose from during this grant phase: Every Evening (1871-1922) and Evening Journal (1888-1922). Competing titles at the time, these newspapers eventually merged to form The News Journal that Delawareans know today."
