Provide Insight into Community Perspectives

Free and open, the Chronicling America database provides access to more than 10 million pages of historic newspapers published from 1836 to 1922. Including national, state, and local news, the site enables users to search newspaper pages for specific keywords and phrases, limited by dates, places, and/or language. These newspapers are made available as part of a joint program between the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress begun in 2005. Currently memory institutions from 38 states participate in the program and select newspapers from their archival collections to digitize to technical specifications established by the Library of Congress. In addition to the newspapers, Chronicling America provides access to more than 250 brief topic guides, a directory of US newspapers published since 1690, and information about library holdings, as well as links to digital versions, when available.
