The digitization of 100,000 pages of historic South Dakota newspapers published between 1836 and 1922 as part of the state's participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

As part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) the South Dakota State Historical Society plans to digitize historic South Dakota newspapers. Recognizing how valuable the newspapers are, the South Dakota State Historical Society has assembled, cared for, and made accessible the largest collection of newspapers in the state on microfilm. Participation in the NDNP would create a wider level of access to the newspaper collection. The newspapers that will be digitized will cover South Dakota's territorial period, the land boom, statehood in 1889, railroad expansion through the state, the Black Hills gold rush, and the early twentieth century. The South Dakota State Historical Society plans to partner with the Minnesota Historical Society, who will function as the technical partner in the digitization process.
