Digitization Projects: Chronicling America Expands with Addition of Newspapers From Maryland and the District of Columbia
Here’s a brief update From the National Newspaper Digitization Program (Library of Congress/NEH Partnership):
This week the Library of Congress began adding more historic newspapers to the Chronicling America Web site.
First-time contributions from Maryland and North Carolina, as well as many other newspapers, are being added to the 6.7 million pages already available from 32 states and the District of Columbia.
