The Jackson County Historical Society is continuing a project to scan and archive all of the Ava Citizen Newspapers. We need help in acquiring the necessary equipment and software to accomplish this project. Many of these issues have already been captured but we have over 300 that still need to be scanned and archived. While we have software in our toolkit that will allow the documents to be full text searchable, we do not have the hardware needed to capture the images quickly, accurately, and without the fear of damaging the pages.
With your donation, our hope is to have adequate funding by early August so that we can acquire what is needed to kick the project off in September.
