I am the Project Coordinator for the Florida & Puerto Rico Digital Newspaper Project. The George A. Smathers Libraries received an NEH grant to digitize historic newspapers, from Florida & Puerto Rico, that are on aging microfilm. The grant was awarded as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program, an initiative to digitize newspapers published in the US and its territories between 1690-1963 and will be made available for free online access. As Project Coordinator, I am responsible for all the day-to-day activities for this grant.
