Digitizing Greencastle Newspapers Coming To Close

A year-long project to digitize local newspapers from the late 1800s to the early 1970s is coming to a close. Digitizing Greencastle: Newspapers 1837- 1979 is a collaborative effort of the Putnam County Public Library, DePauw University Libraries, and the Banner-Graphic newspaper. The online digital archive includes thousands of issues of local Putnam County newspapers available to researchers worldwide. The papers can be searched via the DePauw Digital Library: http://digital. library.depauw.edu/

An “open house” to celebrate the public release of the project will be held at the Putnam County Public Library on Wednesday, May 9 from 5-7pm. The public is invited to come and see the launch, hear about the project and even do some hands-on searching of the newspapers.

Digitizing Greencastle was made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), administered by the Indiana State Library.
