Christmas Comes Early For Digitized Newspapers In Chattanooga
A new Advantage Preservation project was featured in The Chattanoogan yesterday as we have partnered with David Moon and Sam Hall to help make over 6,000 pages of Chattanooga newspapers dating from 1854 to 1907 available online and searchable.
Thanks to 26 enthusiastic donors who helped fund the project, Mr. Moon and Mr. Hall hope to launch chattanooganewspapers.org is by the end of June. Additional funds will go towards a new batch of 10,000 pages yet to be digitized.
David Moon, founder of Picnooga.org, stated that he “stumbled upon Advantage Companies’ Preservation product during recent online research…” “After contacting them, Sam and I found their offering to meet our requirements and vetted them thoroughly, contacting various libraries on their client list. Their costs were reasonable and would allow us to tackle digitizing more newspapers for the immediate future. The ultimate goal is to add as many local publications in the public domain (pre-1923) as possible.”
If you wish to contribute to the digitization of additional newspapers pages for this project, donations can still be made at chattanooganewspapers.org.
