Chronicling America ... More and More Newspapers!

Last week the Library of Congress added more than 165,500 historic newspaper pages to the Chronicling America Web site. This update includes new titles from Nebraska, Louisiana, Hawaii, Utah, Texas, and Virginia, as well as many issues added for existing titles. The site now includes more than 3.4 million pages from 457 titles published between 1860 and 1922 in 22 states and the District of Columbia. Also, take a "sneak peek" at upcoming changes to the site by clicking on the "beta version" links and use the Feedback [+] button to let us know what you think


America is produced by the National Digital Newspaper Program, a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress.... Read more about it!

Editor: If you have not yet checked out this collection of freely available digitized newspapers, you are in for a treat.  It has high quality graphics and an easy-to-use search interface.  It’s also a great place to learn what newspapers are extant for a community and what repositories hold archival copies.  It’s my go-to-place for historical newspaper research!
