Congratulations to our awardees of the 2019 cycle of the Rescuing Texas History program!
In May 2019, The Portal to Texas History announced the latest call for applications to our Rescuing Texas History program, in two tracks: for newspaper and non-newspaper applications. This program is intended to offer up to $1,000 worth of digitization services by the UNT Libraries’ Digital Projects Unit to build access to partners’ local materials. We’re proud to announce that we’ve selected 49 total projects this year. We are thrilled for these partners and wanted to provide everyone a sneak peek of where the new materials are coming from.
