The library has started digitizing the Dunn County News (DCN) from our microfilm collection.  We now have the very earliest of the DCN and The Lumberman online.  Why digitize?  For preservation and accessibility.  Our vendor is also running optical character recognition (OCR) on the film to pickup as many words as possible so they can be indexed and searched.  Quality of the microfilm copy and the original newspaper varies of course so some is more readable than others.  Take a look at the small amount we have done so far http://menomonie.advantage-preservation.com/  If you want to help digitize more of the DCN, contact Ted Stark starkt@menomonielibrary.org
