Advantage Preservation was selected by the Clinton Public Library to digitize the corpus of defunct newspapers from the Lyons and Clinton communities from 1856-1927.
Using microfilm currently housed at the CPL-Lyons facility, Advantage Preservation created and currently hosts the fully digitized materials on a searchable website.
The project was made possible with a grant from the State Historical Society of Iowa’s Historic Resource Development Program.
