The Library of Congress recently updated Chronicling America with a batch of new historic Indiana newspapers. The following additions will bring the total number of Indiana newspaper pages on Chronicling America to over 70,000:
- Brookville American, 1858-1860;
- Indiana American, 1853-1857;
- Indiana State Sentinel (weekly edition), 1875-78, 82-89, 92-94; and
- Wabash Express, 1860-1861.
The Indiana State Library in 2011 was awarded a $293,157 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to digitize Indiana’s historically significant newspapers. Newspapers digitized as part of this two-year project will be included in the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America Database as well as Indiana Memory. You can continually monitor the status of this project at the official Indiana Historic Newspaper Digitization Project website.
