April 11, 2011 – The first volume of The Southern Guardian has completed scanning, and every issue from the year 1911 is now available to read online. What may seem to be a small project, and indeed it may be, is valued by many.

This is a very interesting example of what we all do, in a small way. It was found in the Arkansas Catholic in their article, “First digital archive issues now available.” The high-resolution scanned images, part of a long-term project supported by gifts to Arkansas Catholic‘s Guardian Angels campaign, have been processed for quick loading on any Web browser.

This publication is the official newspaper of the Diocese of Little Rock. And now, all their constituents have access to a valued historical publication, from the beginning.
