From the state:
"We are honored and extremely excited to continue the Digital Newspaper Project,” said Secretary Reagan. “The addition of these papers to the online collections will nurture a fuller appreciation for and understanding of the diverse forces which have combined to create our unique Arizona identity.
The new grant will digitize another 100,000 pages which will make the total online newspaper collection almost 500,000 pages.
UA hopes to digitize some non-English newspapers including one of the longest-running Spanish-language Mexican American newspapers in Arizona, El Tucsonense (1915-1922)."
