STATE ARCHIVES   VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

The Archives Division of the State Historical Society is currently in its second round of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). 

NDNP produces Chronicling America, which is a website providing digital access to historic newspapers. The program is a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Library of Congress (LC). This NEH funded program seeks to eventually include all U.S. states and territories. 

North Dakota is one of the thirty-eight states that have been awarded this grant.  Click here to see the North Dakota titles currently on the Chronicling America website.  

Additional titles to be added this year are the Golden Valley Chronicle (Beach), the Bad Lands Cow boy (Little Missouri), the Nonpartisan Leader (Fargo), and the Hope Pioneer (Hope).
