Rhode Island Historical Newspaper Digitization Project

Digitization of approximately 100,000 pages of Rhode Island newspapers published before 1923, as part of the state’s participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

With support from the National Endowment for the Humanities’ National Digital Newspaper Program, Providence Public Library (PPL), in partnership with the Rhode Island Historical Society (RIHS), will complete an extensive newspaper digitization project that will result in a wealth of Rhode Island’s historical newspapers being digitized and widely available through the Library of Congress for the first time in history. RIHS currently hold master negative microfilm of 314 newspaper titles that ceased prior to 1923. As a result of this project, at least 100,000 pages will be digitized.
