The National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) is an ongoing venture between the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Library of Congress, and cultural institutions across the United States to create a public, searchable database of U.S. newspapers.
The University of Wyoming received a grant to digitize their state newspaper collection in 2019, with the goal of submitting approximately 100,000 pages from various Wyoming newspaper titles in the first phase. As of September 2020 the first batch, containing The Northern Wyoming Herald and Garland Irrigation Era and The Northern Wyoming Herald, is available on Chronicling America.
More information on the project can be found on the libraries Digital Initiatives page under Highlighted Projects.
All states participating in the National Digital Newspaper Program submit data to the Library of Congress Digital Collections Branch's ongoing project, "Chronicling America: Historical American Newspapers."
Patrons may search the online catalog to locate digital images of 17th, 18th, 19th,and 20th Century American newspapers from specific states, counties, and cities. Historic newspapers scanned and submitted by the Wyoming Digital Newspaper Project will eventually be available for public use on this database. More information about the NDNP can be found on Chronicling America's information page.
