Arkansas and Georgia Join the National Digital Newspaper Program

From the National Endowment for the Humanities:

We are happy to announce the addition of two new partners to the National Digital Newspaper Program: Arkansas and Georgia.  NEH recently made awards to the Arkansas State Archives and the University of Georgia to digitize their historic newspapers.  Forty-five states and one territory now participate in the program.  Soon, we hope to have every state and U.S. territory represented in Chronicling America, the open access database of historic American newspapers jointly created by NEH, the Library of Congress, and state partners across the U.S.

NEH awards have also been issued to partners in Arizona, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Dakota, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin to continue their contributions.  You can read more about all of the awards in NEH’s press release.

Here are the updated titles for October and November, 2016.  Some are new titles and some are added to an existing title’s pages in the database. There are 31 in total from 9 different states plus Puerto Rico. (Please note that some newspapers may be listed multiple times because they were updated more than once by the Library of Congress during the month)
