Chronicling America, begun in 2005, is a database and companion website produced by the United States National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP), a partnership between the Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities, maintained by the LOC. The Chronicling America website contains digitized newspaper pages and information about historic newspapers to place the primary sources in context and support future research. The project is described as "long-term effort to develop an Internet-based, searchable database of U.S. newspapers with descriptive information and select digitization of historic pages." Local participants in the project receive awards to scan approximately 100,000 newspaper pages, primarily from microfilm.[1]

As of 2012, Chronicling America has over 5.2 million individual newspaper pages available for viewing and/or downloading, representing 801 titles from 32 states; though the project initially targeted newspapers from the 1900-1910 period, it has gradually expanded so that papers scanned currently span the years 1836-1922. Papers from 4 additional states - Iowa, North Carolina, Michigan, and Maryland - are slated to be added to the collection, and grant-funded projects to scan papers from these states are underway so that the material can be added to the site in 2013.[1][2]
