Two more Nevada newspaper archives searchable online

From Nevada State Archivist Jeff Kintop:

The Pioche Record and Lincoln County Record through 1922 are now searchable online at Library of Congress’ Chronicling America website.

The Tonopah Bonanza was added earlier this year and project is currently working on the Nevada Appeal.

It is part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP), a collaboration between the NEH and the Library of Congress to preserve historic United States newspapers from 1640 to 1922 and share them via the Chronicling America website (http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/).

UNLV Libraries led a team including the Nevada State Library and Archives as well as the University of Nevada, Reno’s Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center to digitize Nevada newspapers.

Over a two-year period, 100,000 pages of information previously stored on microfilm or found only on old paper copies of Nevada newspapers will be reclaimed and made accessible to researchers around the world. Nevada is joining 37 other U.S. states and territories currently engaged in this landmark endeavor.
