Batch/Title Scheduling

The title list for the DDNP’s 2015/2017 award cycle, including recently added titles, is currently being reviewed by LC staff. These titles are prioritized based on input from many sources, including The Colored Conventions Project (NEH-funded), the DDNP Project Advisory Board, UD Librarians and Library Staff, UD Faculty, and more.

With such a long list of titles for this first cycle, this table will give you a better idea of what titles to expect to show up next on Chronicling America (ChronAm). We borrowed names from popular Harry Potter spells and common words, which allows our batches to stand apart from the other state NDNP projects. Each batch is first processed at the UD Library by project team members to check for page count, order, and quality, and then each batch (includes microfilm reels and new hard drive) is sent to HTC Global, our scanning and digitization vendor. When HTC has completed their process, they return the hard drive to us, we send it to the Library of Congress, and the final step is waiting for it to appear on ChronAm.

This list will be updated as often as possible, but always feel free to email Molly Olney-Zide ( for specific questions!
