Newspapers Online

Here is a list of online newspapers by state. The listing also has a convenient link to the archived versions of the papers.

Finding newspapers online can be complicated, with lots of analysis required to sift through access points and third party providers.

The Library of Congress (LoC) Chronicling America web page provides a searchable/browseable directory of all known American papers (use the 'Find' box).

Each state has a newspaper program, part of the National Newspaper Program. Content varies, but some states will not only provide their subset of the LoC database, but also say what libraries in the state have what newspaper titles for what years.

The International Coalition of Newspapers page highlights and links to past, present, and prospective digitization projects of historic newspapers.

Wikipedia also lists online newspaper archives, and so does Cyndi's List.

Historical Newspapers and Indexes on the Internet has some unique items.

Genealogist Jeffrey Bockman has also made available a list of online newspapers.
