New York University plans to digitize more than 100 years' worth of issues from the city's official journal.
The university’s Tandon School of Engineering won a $260,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to electronically file 1 million pages of data from the New York City Record onto a portal on NYC.gov.
The more than 1,700 hard-copy volumes of the City Record contain data on city employees, City Council minutes, homeless statistics and public utility contracts.
