NATIONAL DIGITAL NEWSPAPER PROGRAM

The National Endowment for the Humanities awarded the South Dakota State Historical Society-State Archives a $294,665 grant in 2014 to digitize historical newspapers. The project is part of a Library of Congress initiative to develop an online database of select newspapers.

  • The South Dakota State Archives is partnering with the Minnesota State Historical Society on this project.

  • The project will allow for the digitization of close to 100 rolls of newspapers pre-dating 1922.

  • The digitized versions of the newspapers will appear on the Library of Congress website, Chronicling America.
