Millionth Page in Chronicling America Program

Today is a significant day for the <a href="">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="">Newseum</a>, Deanna Marcum, Associate Librarian for Library Services at the Library of Congress, announced that the <a href="">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.
