Library of Congress update

The Library of Congress announced an update to the Chronicling America upload process this week. In the past, after data had been checked and accepted by the NDNP staff, it was held until periodic updates were made to the site. Now, data will be ingested as soon as it has been accepted, making the turnaround time from digitization to upload a lot quicker.

You can see, in real time, which batches are currently being uploaded: http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/events/  Tennessee batches start with “batch_tu_”. batch_tu_dottie and batch_tu_frank were uploaded earlier this week (batch_tu_ernie must still be in the queue). Titles in these batches include the Camden Chronicle, Columbia Herald, Pulaski Citizen, Bolivar Bulletin, Memphis Appeal, Winchester Home Journal, and the Nashville Globe.
