Alaska awarded 4th newspaper grant!

NEH Announces $31.5 Million for 226 Humanities Projects Nationwide

We are happy to say that the National Endowment for Humanities recently announced that Alaska would receive a 4th grant in the National Digital Newspaper Project, covering 2022-2024. This means that the Alaska Digital Newspaper Project will be able to add an additional 100,000 pages of Alaskan newspapers to Chronicling America! We are excited to continue our work on preserving Alaska’s historic newspapers and making them accessible to everyone.

We will be working to form a new advisory committee to help us select newspaper titles for the coming grant and we will keep you informed of our progress throughout this next cycle!
