Title Selection

Criteria

NDNP projects are responsible for establishing an advisory board to recommend titles for digitization. Our advisory board is made up of historians, archivists, librarians, and educators from across Maryland. At the beginning of a two-year NDNP award, advisory board members recommend titles and prioritize them for digitization. To be considered for digitization, a title must meet these basic requirements:

  1. The newspaper must have been published in the state of Maryland.
  2. The newspaper must reflect the political, economic, and cultural history of Maryland.
  3. The newspaper must have been published between 1690 and 1963.

View the complete list of NDNP selection criteria

 

The project staff also evaluates the technical quality and completeness of the title on microfilm before a title is digitized. Sometimes print copies are used to supplement the run on microfilm. The selected titles are added to Chronicling America on a rolling basis as digitization progresses.
