Since 2009, Libraries Nova Scotia has sponsored a series of newspaper digitization projects designed to explore the challenges of preserving and providing online access to a selection of the province’s historical and culturally diverse newspapers.
During that time, an estimated 104,700 page of newspapers have been digitized. That includes 21 titles stretching from 1769 to 2003.
This ambitious project has been invaluable in helping to preserve the heritage of at-risk print publications from across Nova Scotia’s history. To experience the ‘blast from the past’, take a look for yourself, and let history wash over you.
