PHOENIX – The State of Arizona Research Library recently finished adding continued coverage to three of the most influential newspaper titles in Arizona: The Border Vidette, The Coconino Sun, and the Arizona Republican. These three newspapers cover the physical expanse of Arizona, from Flagstaff to Nogales. The addition of these issues now extends the coverage from these three newspaper titles from 1890-1934.
“We are excited to be able to extend coverage for three of Arizona’s historically prominent newspapers representing central, northern and southern Arizona,” said Sativa Peterson, National Digital Newspaper Program grant project director and news content program manager for the State of Arizona Research Library. “Each was previously digitized, but this grant has allowed us to add new content and extend the years available online.”
These are just three of the 40 newspaper titles from communities around Arizona that were digitized by the Arizona State Library in partnership with the University of Arizona Libraries, thanks to the National Endowment for the Humanities and Library of Congress’ National Digital Newspaper Program. All issues will be available on the Arizona Memory Project indefinitely and can be viewed for free on any digital device at https://azmemory.azlibrary.gov/digital/custom/newspapers.
