National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP)

The National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) celebrated its 10th year in 2015!

A partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Library of Congress (LC), the NDNP supports U.S. institutions in digitizing state newspapers from 1690-1963 (extension as of July 2016!). Predominantly preserved in microfilm, these newspapers are digitized with grant funds and made full-text searchable via Chronicling America (aka ChronAm). Qualifying state institutions are awarded two-year grants and are supported in the digitization of up to 100,000 pages. Institutions are eligible (and encouraged) to apply for future grants and continue their contributions to the NDNP.
