Chronicling America Adds More Historic Ohio Newspaper Pages

The National Digital Newspaper Program in Ohio is pleased to announce that the remainder of the newspaper pages digitized under the 2008-2010 grant cycle is now available on Chronicling America.

Portions of the following papers are keyword-searchable on the Library of Congress website:

Over the next two years, these 14 titles will be joined by even more papers as the Ohio Historical Society continues to make contributions to the National Digital Newspaper Program. Future additions will help to tell the story of the Civil War, both in Ohio and beyond.

The National Digital Newspaper Program is a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Library of Congress and state projects to provide enhanced access to United States newspapers published between 1836 and 1922. NEH awards support state projects to select and digitize historically significant titles that are aggregated and permanently maintained by the Library of Congress. As part of the project, the Ohio Historical Society contributed over 100,000 newspaper pages to Chronicling America over a two year period ending July 2010 and will contribute an additional 100,000 pages by the end of July 2012.
