Ohio Digital Newspaper Project, Phase One

Digitization of 100,000 pages of Ohio's microfilmed newspapers from 1880 to 1922, as part of the National Newspaper Digital Program (NDNP).

The Ohio Historical Society (OHS) will digitize 100,000 pages of Ohio?s microfilmed newspapers for the Ohio Newspaper Digitization Project (ONDP). The two-year project will deliver digitized newspaper pages to the Library of Congress for inclusion in the Chronicling America online repository. Ohio?s newspapers reflect the state?s pivotal role within our nation?s history. The Society holds the most complete newspaper microfilm collection in the state. An Advisory Board representative of historians, educators, scholars, librarians and archivists in Ohio will be responsible for selecting titles from the Society?s collection that are between the dates of 1880 and 1922. With funding from NEH and the support of the Library of Congress, the Ohio Historical Society will provide an essential contribution to the National Digital Newspaper Project.
