"The first grant, for $49,400, will fund the digitization of the Las Vegas Age, which ran from 1905-1947, and the region’s first newspaper, the Las Vegas Times, which ran from 1905-1906. The grant will be used to create an online, searchable versions of the two newspapers through the University Libraries website.
These newspapers are of great historical value for the City of Las Vegas and give a glimpse of what was happening during the early years of Las Vegas,” said Michelle Light, director of Special Collections and Archives. “By adding these historical newspapers to our online collections, we will be able to make them available to researchers around the world and preserve key documents chronicling the history of our community,” Light said."
