Abstract

Historical newspaper research has become increasingly straightforward with digitization and has allowed historical research to be more accessible for the general public. The Utah Digital Newspapers program is a seminal project that has led the way for libraries and archives to digitize their historical newspapers. With over five million newspaper articles online, first-hand reports of historical events are at the fingertips of anybody with an Internet connection.
