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.
