"The Louisville Times" is Now Online
Part of the Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection
On October 12, the Library hosted an open house to celebrate the launch of online availability of The Louisville Times. Over the past several months, hard copy issues of the Louisville Times, from 1942 to 2007, have been painstakingly digitized. The process began several years ago when the newspaper’s publisher offered back issues of the Louisville Times to the Museum. It was clear from the outset that public access to the collection would involve digitization, as the collection was fragile and deteriorating. The lengthy process began.
With funding approved by City Council in the 2017 budget, the Library worked with the CHNC to coordinate the complex project. CHNC handled the digitization process including vendor relations and technology; going forward it will handle ongoing maintenance and availability. Now that the collection is digitized, the City will not incur any further costs to have this collection available to the public.
The CHNC website is robust and easy to use. You may access it directly or from the Museum website under Research Resources.
Library and Museum staffs are available to help and answer questions.
