While driving back across Texas from Ruidoso, New Mexico, dropped into Denton, Texas where UNT's Digital Newspaper Department is located and took a quick tour of the facility. Some images attached. Always good to see the people/team behind all the work. Looks like some Refugio newspapers from the 50's to be loaded soon. The newspapers are removed from their bindings and placed in boxes that absorb problem gases from the pages. Apparently, the bindings are a major problem with preserving newspapers. I was told 198 of 254 county newspapers can be found on the Portal, many still in progress.
