Alaska's Digital Newspaper Program: Home

The Alaska State Library was awarded a National Endowment for the Humanities and Library of Congress grant for the 2016-2018 cycle of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). The purpose of the program is to digitally preserve and provide free access to historical newspapers in a searchable online database, Chronicling America. Currently, Alaska has added over 103,000 pages to Chronicling America. Available titles are linked below.
