We got some great news earlier this week from Deborah Thomas, National Digital Newspaper Program Coordinator with the Library of Congress:
“Today, we added 275,824 newspaper pages to Chronicling America (http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/ ) received since our last site update in April. We now have more than 2.3 million pages of newspapers from 295 titles published in 19 states and the District of Columbia available.”
Included among those 275,824 new pages is our very first Oregon content. You can now search and view issues of the Klamath Falls Evening Herald published between 1908 and 1922. Our essay detailing the history of the Evening Herald is also included for those who would like to learn more about this interesting paper.
The next site update at Chronicling America is scheduled for September. At that time, even more Oregon newspapers should be made available. In the meantime, we’re thrilled to have the Evening Herald online. It really feels like our project is coming together now!
