The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) strives to serve and strengthen our republic by promoting excellence in the humanities and conveying the lessons of history to all Americans. To help make the humanities accessible to all, NEH is introducing In the Field, its first ever web series which takes a deep dive into NEH-funded projects and products in the field of the humanities. The first episode of In the Field (bit.ly/2h9J4Vn) takes viewers through the inner workings of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). The NDNP is a partnership between NEH, The Library of Congress (LOC), and state projects that provides enhanced access to United States newspapers published between 1690 and 1963. NEH awards support state projects that select and digitize historically significant titles which are then aggregated and permanently maintained by the Library of Congress. Watch now: bit.ly/2h9J4Vn
