Our Work

Digitize Newspapers


In June 2009, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library received funding under the National Endowment for the Humanities' National Digital Newspaper Program to digitize 100,000 pages of historically significant Illinois newspapers dating from 1865-1922. This funding enabled us to take newspaper access and preservation into the next stage: digitization. Newspapers digitized as part of this program are available on the Library of Congress' Chronicling America website, and also via the University of Illinois History, Philosophy, and Newspaper Library's Illinois Digital Newspaper Collections.
