New Titles Online!

Although Covid has slowed down some of our work on the Alaska Digital Newspaper Project, it hasn’t stopped it! As part of our 2018-2020 cycle with the Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities, we have uploaded over 35,000 pages to Chronicling America from the following newspapers:

  • The New Native (Hydaburg, Alaska)
  • The Free Press (Fairbanks, Alaska)
  • The Alaska Socialist (Fairbanks, Alaska)
  • The Midnight Sun (Wales, Alaska)
  • The Nome Daily Nugget (Nome, Alaska)
  • The Nome Nugget (Nome, Alaska)
  • Tundra Times (Fairbanks, Alaska)
  • Kodiak Mirror (Kodiak, Alaska)
  • The Daily Progressive-Miner (Ketchikan, Alaska)
  • The Ketchikan Miner (Ketchikan, Alaska)
  • The Ketchikan Mining News (Ketchikan, Alaska)
  • The Daily Alaska Empire (Juneau, Alaska)
  • The Alaska Daily Empire (Juneau, Alaska)

Over the next year we expect to upload another 70,000 pages to the Library of Congress website: Chronicling America. We have also begun the process of selecting titles to digitize for the 2020-2022 cycle and are excited to add even more of our historic Alaskan newspapers to this public resource, and make them available to everyone.
