UNT Libraries Honored for Work Digitizing NBC 5 Archive

The University of North Texas Libraries have been awarded the Award of Archival Excellence by the Texas Historical Records Advisory Board for their work digitizing and preserving the NBC 5 archives as part of the Portal to Texas History project.

NBC 5 is Texas' oldest television station and UNT digitized over 20,000 individual news segments dating from 1951 to 1979.

The project began in 2013 when NBC 5 donated thousands of film reels to UNT and contributed $275,000 to begin the archive.
