Newspapers On The Library of Congress Website

Looks like the U.S. Newspaper Program is starting to pay off. I have always liked Colorado & Utah's free digital newspapers. Now it looks like you will be able to access the digital papers from The Library of Congress website. Now in BETA, Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers only covers 25 papers in 7 states between 1900-1910, but this will be an interesting project to watch.

The Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers website will also let you find information about newspapers published in the United States from 1690 to the present in the Chronicling America Directory & tell you where you can find them.

Hoping to find the original digital newspaper websites for a larger database I was able to find these:
DC-not found
NY-not found
VA-not found

Good site for finding world wide digital newspapers:
The International Coalition on Newspapers-
