Featured Online Resource, October 10

This week's Featured Online Resource is Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers from the Library of Congress (

This project has digitized historic newspapers from 1836 – 1922. You can search for a specific newspaper by name or search for newspapers by state. The project currently has 581 newspapers they have digitized. You can click on the image of the newspaper and move around on the page as if you were reading it in print. You can also zoom in and get a better view of a particular article. The site also allows you to download the newspaper in PDF as well.

Every week, the Ort Library brings you a new and outstanding resource from the Web or from one of the library's databases. To get an archive of all FOR entries, click here. Also, you can suggest a website that provides well-organized access to useful info.
