Alaska Historical Newspapers

Alaska’s Digital Newspaper Program

The Alaska State Library was awarded a National Endowment for the Humanities and Library of Congress grant for the 2016-2018 cycle of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). The purpose of the program is to digitally preserve and provide free access to historical newspapers in a searchable online database, Chronicling America. Currently, Alaska has added 9,010 pages to Chronicling America. Available titles are linked below.
