LC - Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers

The Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities provide the following information at http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov.

Welcome to Chronicling America, enhancing access to America's historic newspapers. This site allows you to search and view newspaper pages from 1880-1922 and find information about American newspapers published between 1690-present. Chronicling America is sponsored jointly by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The growing project covers the time period "from 1880 to 1922 from the following states: Arizona, California, District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Virginia and Washington.

NEH - National Digital Newspaper Program

The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) describes the program at http://www.neh.gov/projects/ndnp.html.

The National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) is a partnership between the NEH, the Library of Congress (LC), 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.

Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers is a prototype of the digital resource being produced through NDNP. It is a natural followup project to an earlier NEH initiative, the United States Newspaper Program, "a cooperative national effort among the states and the federal government to locate, catalog, and preserve on microfilm newspapers published in the United States from the eighteenth century to the present."
