More Digitized Newspapers! Alaska, Colorado, Maine, and New Jersey Join National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP)

From the National Endowment for the Humanities:

NEH has made awards to digitize historic newspapers to the Alaska Division of Libraries, Archives, and Museums; the Colorado Historical Society; the Maine State Library, and Rutgers University in New Jersey.

With forty-three states and one territory now participating in the National Digital Newspaper Program, NEH is approaching its goal of representing every state and U.S. territory in Chronicling America, the open access database of historic American newspapers maintained by the Library of Congress.

This year, NEH awards have also been issued to state partners in Illinois, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio, South Dakota, and Texas to continue their contributions to Chronicling America [a partnership with the Library of Congress].
