The following is an announcement from the University of Richmond:
Through support from an IMLS grant and in collaboration with Project Perseus at Tufts University, the University of Richmond has digitized the Richmond Daily Dispatch newspaper for the Civil War years. The project is not yet complete. However the newspaper is now available for use and exploration. Please bring it to the attention of faculty who study or teach about the Civil War era at your school or college.
We welcome your comments and feedback on this work in progress; just click on the survey link on the newspaper’s homepage at http://dlxs.richmond.edu/d/ddr/index.html. We hope this will be useful to a broad audience encompassing scholars, students, genealogists, Civil War buffs, re-enactors, and more. Please feel free to bring it to the attention of other librarians and interested parties.
