The digitization of 100,000 pages of Oregon newspapers, dating from 1860 to 1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The Oregon Digital Newspaper Program proposes to be a participant in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). Under this proposal requests funds to digitize 100,000 pages of historic Oregon newspaper content for inclusion in NDNP. The digitized newspapers will be full text searchable and available online as part of the Library of Congress' Chronicling America web site. Oregon's early newspapers chronicle significant events in Oregon, our country, and the world. Researchers of early race relations, feminism, labor movements, and literature can find a vast amount of primary resources within the pages of historic Oregon newspapers. This online resource is invaluable for scholars, educators and enthusiasts in history and the humanities. In addition to the online collection, preservation quality copies of the newspapers on microfilm and preservation quality tiffs will be deposited in the Library of Congress to ensure the knowledge of our past is available for generations to come.
