Chronicling America OFFLINE This Weekend

It's getting late; too late to post my Friday Finds in Newspapers, especially since I have an early beginning to my long day tomorrow.

I did want to post this notice that the Library of Congress sent out: all their websites, including Chronicling America, will be OFFLINE this weekend, while the Architect of the Library is performing maintenance.

They plan to be back online the evening of Sunday, August 30th.

Recently, I found the following articles and items regarding historic newspapers:
  • The National Library of Australia's Trove has updated 227 of its titles with more content. These include newspapers from Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria, and West Australia.
  • The Library of Congress' Chronicling America has updated 45 of its titles with more content from Idaho, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
  • The Oregon Digital Newspaper Program has added 24 titles to its collection from the following cities: Albany, Astoria, Corvallis, Heppner, Hood River, Monmouth, Pendleton, Prineville, Roseburg, Salem, and St. Helens.
  • Findmypast has added two new titles to and updated several others from its historic Irish Newspapers collection. These include the Missionary Herald of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, the Tyrone Constitution, and the Dublin Evening Mail. They have also added 11 new titles to their British Newspapers collection, including the Glasgow Sentinel, Lincolnshire Advertiser, Kentish Advertiser, Sheffield Iris, and the Yorkshire Early Bird. In addition, they have updated the Newcastle Journal and the Birmingham Daily Gazette.
  • The Digital Library of Georgia has added the Southern Voice, the newspaper of Kennesaw State University, to its collections. The issues range from 1988 to 2010,
  • The Chicago Tribune is providing a text-searchable archive of past issues from 1849 through 1991. These may eventually go being a subscription wall, so search them now!
