The Oregon Digital Newspaper Program (ODNP) is an initiative to digitize historic Oregon newspaper content and make it freely available to the public through a keyword-searchable online database. The initial phase of the program, starting in 2009, has concentrated on newspapers in the Public Domain published between 1860 and 1922. There are currently over 650,000 pages of content available on the Historic Oregon Newspapers website, with some content published after 1922.

The ODNP was also constructed to help facilitate the digitization of Oregon newspapers by outside organizations/individuals. If you are interested in participating, please contact us.
