An NEH-funded initiative to provide digital access to historically significant New Hampshire newspapers.
The New Hampshire Digital Newspaper Project (NHDP) is a collaborative effort to select, digitize, and make publicly available historic New Hampshire newspapers under the auspices of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). In 2022, New Hampshire became the fiftieth state to join NDNP, with the goal of digitizing 100,000 pages of New Hampshire newsprint from microfilm by 2024.
The NDNP is a long-term partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Library of Congress to develop a free, searchable database of U.S. Newspapers from all states and territories. Digitized newspapers are indexed and made available on the Chronicling America website, a growing collection of over 20 million pages published prior to 1963.
You can access New Hampshire's contributions to Chronicling America here.
The NHDNP is a public-private collaboration between partner institutions through the state: Dartmouth College, New Hampshire State Library, New Hampshire Historical Society, and University of New Hampshire. This coalition is dedicated to responsible stewardship of the state’s cultural heritage and making it open access and freely accessible to all.
