The History, Philosophy, and Newspaper Library introduces the new Illinois Digital Newspaper Collection, powered by Veridian. The Illinois Digital Newspaper Collection combines 1.2 million pages of digitized newspapers in one freely accessible location. Using Veridian Digital Library software, the IDNP offers a modern and user-friendly way to access unique research tools and engage with the past.
The site includes interactive features allowing users to tag articles, correct OCR text, and share on social media. A text correction contest will be announced next month.
The Illinois Digital Newspaper Project is available online at http://idnc.library.illinois.edu
