Today is a significant day for the <a href="http://www.loc.gov/today/pr/2009/09-123.html">Library of Congress</a>: The Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities today marked a major milestone in their partnership to digitize historic U.S. newspapers and make them widely available to the public on the Internet. During an event held at the <a href="http://www.newseum.org/">Newseum</a>, Deanna Marcum, Associate Librarian for Library Services at the Library of Congress, announced that the <a href="http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/">Chronicling America website</a>—a free, national, searchable database of historic American newspaper pages published between 1880 and 1922—recently posted its millionth page. Congrats to both the LOC and NEH.
