Project Newspapers

The Ohio History Connection has digitized over 315,000 pages of Ohio newspapers through its participation in the National Digital Newspaper Program and will digitize an additional 100,000 pages of foreign-language newspapers by the end of 2018. This content is freely-available at Chronicling America.

Blue-shaded counties in the map above indicate that a newspaper from this county is available online or will be soon. You can access the digital edition of a paper by clicking on its title (titles that are not hyperlinked/blue are not available online yet but will be soon). Click “Yes” in the “More Info” column to learn more about each newspaper’s history and see related titles that have also been digitized for Chronicling America. To see additional digitized Ohio newspapers, please visit Ohio Memory, the collaborative digital library of the Ohio History Connection and State Library of Ohio.

Tip: Use the Up and Down arrows to sort the list alphabetically by title, city, county, region or special press type, or chronologically by date. To find what you’re looking for even faster, try using the search box directly above the table. For example, to find all digitized Cleveland papers, type in Cleveland, and your results will automatically only include entries with the word “Cleveland.” Please note that this search box only searches the list below and not the actual newspaper pages.
