A project to digitize historical newspaper archives in West Virginia has landed another grant.

The West Virginia University Libraries' West Virginia & Regional History Center received a nearly $202,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to keep digitizing newspapers published in the state from 1790 to 1923. It's the fifth grant contribution from the National Endowment for the Humanities, bringing the group's total contribution to the center's efforts to $968,000.
