University of Wyoming Libraries has received a third round of funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to support ongoing newspaper digitization work.

The two-year, $260,000 grant will support the ongoing Wyoming Digital Newspaper Project, which began in August 2019 after the first NEH grant was awarded.

The project's phase involves digitizing 100,000 pages of select Wyoming newspapers, dating from 1867 to 1963, as part of the state’s participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). Wyoming newspapers on the Chronicling America website include several years of the Cheyenne Daily Leader and succeeding title, The Democratic Leader. 

The Wyoming State Archives and UW Libraries are the two primary repositories for Wyoming print and microfilm newspaper collections. UW Libraries has digitized and uploaded over 200,000 pages to the Chronicling America website

Bestselling author Stephen Markley will visit the University of Wyoming to host a screenwriting discussion on Tuesday, Sept. 26, at 4:10 p.m. in Room 506 of Coe Library.
The following day, Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 4:10 p.m. in Coe Library’s McMurry Room, he will read from and discuss his new book, “The Deluge,” at an event titled “In Conversation with Stephen Markley.”

The New York Times describes Markley’s book: “Immersive and ambitious, (‘The Deluge’) shows the range of its author’s gifts: polyphonic narration, silken sentences and elaborate world-building.”

Markley, a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, is an American journalist and author whose work includes memoirs and novels. In addition to the “The Deluge,” which spans the years 2013-2030, he is the author of “Publish This Book,” “Tales of Iceland” and “Ohio.” He also has written for the Hulu comedy, “Only Murders in the Building.”
