Friday Finds in Newspapers: 16 January 2015

Recently, I found the following articles regarding historic newspapers:
  • The Library of Congress' Chronicling America has updated 22 of its titles with more content. These include newspapers from Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, and South Carolina. 
  • The Oregon Digital Newspaper Program has updated one of its titles with more content.

  1. Is there a page on the Chronicling America site that lists what is new or has been updated? If you didn't post about the updates here, I'd never know their content changed. Thanks, by the way!

  2. Hi, Jason! Good question. They have an RSS feed that gives updates for their title content, which is only viewable at a feed reader. While they have a blog, the updates aren't listed there. The link to the feed is: (copy and paste this). I have added it to Feedly, my feed reader (, which is how I can read the updates. You can also find the RSS feed link yourself at the bottom of the Chronicling America page ( Best of luck, and thank you for reading my blog.

  3. Thank you for the response! I use Feedly as well, so this is perfect.
