Exciting news, all!

For the past two years, our team at the Alaska State Library has been re-shooting bound volumes of the Nome Nugget to include on Chronicling America. The process has had its share of difficulties, but I’m pleased to announced that we have finished filming the Nome Nugget from 1911-1917 to replace current microfilm that is overexposed and nearly impossible to read.

It’s difficult to predict when these issues will be available on Chronicling America, but they are included in this first batch of the 2018-2020 cycle.

Special thanks to Gregory Philson and Amber Glen for all their hard work shooting the bound volumes on the BookEye scanner!
