“Using Chronicling America” Podcast Series was developed by the Ohio Historical Society in collaboration with the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program in Ohio. For more information, click here.

The National Digital Newspaper Program is a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities and 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 100,000 newspaper pages to the project over a two year period ending June 2010 and will contribute an additional 100,000 pages by the end of August 2012.
