Digitizing NIU’s historic “Northern Star” newspapers

April 23, 2023 @ 12:00 pm

Recently digitized issues of the “Northern Illinois,” now known as the campus newspaper “Northern Star,” are providing a link to local history.
At 12 p.m. on Sunday, April 23, at the Glidden Homestead, 921 W. Lincoln Highway, in DeKalb, learn more about the digitization process of the newspaper, a project led by the Special Collections and Archives department through Northern Illinois University’s Founders Memorial Library.

The Glidden Homestead museum will be open for tours, and The Phineas Vaughan Blacksmith Shop will be open and operating that day while volunteer blacksmiths provide demonstrations of the craft. Admission for the program and tour is $5 for adults; children younger than 14 and homestead members are admitted free.
