The UIUC Library is committed to preserving the cultural heritage of Illinois. Newspapers contain a wealth of historical information for researchers, archivists, librarians, and the general public. Our goal is to preserve this valuable resource through careful stewardship, including proper storage, handling, and repair of the originals. By donating Illinois newspapers to the Illinois Newspaper Project at the UIUC Library, you add to the pool of newspapers that can be microfilmed for preservation and possibly also digitized in the future.

The Illinois Newspaper Project places priority on longer runs of Illinois newspapers published prior to 1970, especially those that have not been previously preserved on microfilm. We also look for any newsprint that would fill gaps in existing microfilm. However, please contact us if you have any questions about making a donation.
