Abstract
Presentation given to summer citizens' group in Logan, Utah to tell them about the Logan Historical Newspaper Transcription Project and recruit volunteer transcribers. This project entails manually correcting computer-generated transcriptions to improve discoverability of the full-text digitized versions of the predecessor to today's Herald Journal. Before becoming today's Herald Journal, Logan's newspaper had four different titles: Logan Leader (1879-1882), Utah Journal (1882-1889), Logan Journal (1889-1891), and Journal (1892-1931). This digitized collection begins in 1879 with the Logan Leader and ends in 1898 with the Journal.
