Approximately 300,000 pages of the Cornell Daily Sun, published between 1880 and 2000, will be digitized for this project. The cost to digitize one academic year's issues is $5,000 for papers produced through the early 1970s. Because the size of the Sun increased in the mid-70s and through the 1980s, digitizing those volumes will cost $7,500–$10,000. This includes scanning the original newspapers to produce digital images, indexing the text and creating the database to allow full-text searches, and mounting the images and data on the Web. We are encouraging donors to consider gifts of $20,000 or more in support of this project, which will enable the library to digitize the Sun archives in four-year segments.
