    DCAGS November Meeting
    Finding Digitized Newspapers
    with Michael Peterson

    Mike will discuss:

It is the end-product of the NDNP program, where all of the digitized newspapers from each NDNP project partner are centrally located. Mike will discuss what is available on the website and how to search.
    • Other websites that offer freely accessible digitized newspapers

    You are invited to a Zoom meeting.
    Time: Nov. 13, 2021 11:00 AM Central Time
