The digitization of 100,000 pages of Illinois newspapers, dating from 1860 to 1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) Library, on behalf of the Illinois Digital Newspaper Project Planning Consortium, a coalition of major cultural heritage institutions in Illinois, proposes to select, digitize, and make available to the Library of Congress 100,000 pages of historically significant Illinois newsprint, published between 1860 and 1922, as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). The proposed Illinois Digital Newspaper Project (IDNP) builds on the success of the Illinois Newspaper Project (part of the United States Newspaper Program), funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and supported by the Library of Congress.
