Historical newspaper records once available only through long hours of research can now
be accessed within seconds.
In a lecture on Oct. 29, project coordinator Louisa Trott will talk about the scope of The Tennessee Digitization Project, its value to researchers and how it can be accessed.
Trott will also give examples of the many types of information to be found in newspapers from the period.
The lecture, free and open to the public, will begin at noon in the East Tennessee History Center at 601 S. Gay St., Knoxville.
