Hope Dunbar, Special Collections Archivist, Archives and Special Collections, E. H. Butler Library

Hope Dunbar, special collections archivist in Butler Library, has been awarded a $30,000 grant through the Western New York Library Resources Council to assist in digitizing the Buffalo Courier-Express Newspaper Collection. This grant funding will allow for the conversion of 235 microfilm reels spanning from September 11, 1968, to October 16, 1977, and comprising nearly 200,000 images. This marks another milestone in the Archives and Special Collections Department's ambitious push to provide free and open access to the complete run of this valuable and unique historical material for researchers worldwide. The editions from 1977 to 1982 have already been digitized by the department through grant funding and are freely available through NY Historic Newspapers
