The beta version of the Historic Oregon Newspapers content site has now gone live. You can test the interface and start viewing more than 130,000 pages here: http://oregonnews.uoregon.edu
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 will concentrate on newspapers published between 1860 and 1922, with a goal of approximately 150,000 pages freely available online in the first two years (2009-2011).
ODNP is funded through a combination of grants from the Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA), the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Oregon Cultural Trust, and the Oregon Newspaper Publishers Association.
