TexTreasures Gainesville Daily Register Digitization Project Blog

Visit the Cooke County Library’s “Gainesville Daily Register Digitization Project” blog to keep up-to-date on the progress of the 2023 TexTreasures Grant that the library received to digitize the 1947 – 1956 Gainesville Daily Register newspaper issues. All of these issues will eventually be available to access on the University of North Texas’s “Portal to Texas History” website. Currently, there are over 9,000 issues available.

Check out the blog and sign up so you know when new posts are made. Stay tuned for more posts in the upcoming weeks!

This project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (Grant #LS-252486-OLS-22) to the Texas State Library and Archives Commission under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act. (2023)
