How to find current and historical newspapers at the Libraries and beyond.

Arkansas Digital Newspaper Project

The Arkansas State Archives is participating in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) to digitize and make available dozens of Arkansas newspapers.

The NDNP project is a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Library of Congress (LC) to provide free online access to historic newspapers from across the United States and U.S. territories.

The Arkansas State Archives began work on the NDNP project in 2017 and to date has coordinated the digitization of newspapers from more than 25 counties.  All newspapers can be searched and viewed on the Library of Congress' Chronicling America site.

Chronicling America newspapers can be found in OneSearch; for articles and page images of those papers, visit the Chronicling America website.
