-----Original Message----- From: NEH-LC National Digital Newpaper Program - On Behalf Of Tom McMurdo Sent: Tuesday, November 06, 2012 11:05 AM Subject: [NDNP] Farewell!
Today is my final day as Project Librarian for the Vermont Digital Newspaper Project. I am moving just down the road to become Head of Technical Services at the Vermont State Library in Montpelier, VT. For most of the last 12 years I have been part of either the USNP, NDNP, or both. For the last two years I have been here in VT, and before that I was part of the CDNC at Berkeley, and the California Newspaper Project at Berkeley and Riverside. While I will miss my daily encounters with historical newspapers and microfilm, I won’t miss those anxious months between grant applications and approvals. This new position is a great opportunity and I am really looking forward to it. That said, I will miss being part of this dynamic project as part of my day to day work. Fortunately, my new position has a historical role as an adviser for the VTDNP, so I will still have a degree of involvement in the Project.
I have greatly enjoyed being part of the NDNP community and I look forward to seeing more states join and witnessing the growth of more homegrown state historical newspaper digitization projects.
My best to all of you,
