In 2009, LSU received an NDNP grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities allowing us to participate in NDNP and add Louisiana newspapers to Chronicling America, a website hosted by the Library of Congress that enhances access to America’s historic newspapers.

This site currently allows users to search and view more than 2 million newspaper pages from 1880-1922—for free! Currently NDNP has 22 state partners. Louisiana is one of seven added in 2009, to digitize 100,000 newspaper pages.

Ms. Thomas’s presentation will be a great way to learn about the program’s goals for digitizing historical newspapers from all over the country.

Refreshments provided.
