Chronicling America Information

Chronicling America, a free database providing access to select digitized newspaper pages (1690-1963) and information about many more historic newspapers, is produced by the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). NDNP, a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Library of Congress (LC), is a long-term effort to  develop an Internet-based, searchable database of U.S. newspapers with descriptive information and select digitization of historic pages. This database is freely available to all researchers and new content is added daily (over ten million pages and counting!). Supported by NEH, this rich digital resource will be developed and permanently maintained at the Library of Congress. An NEH award program will fund the contribution of content from, eventually, all U.S. states and territories.
