Chronicling America UPDATE!

The Chronicling America site (http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/) has been updated!

Chronicling America now provides access to more than 6.6 million pages from more than 1000 titles published 1836-1922 and digitized by awardees in 30 states and the Library of Congress.

First-time contributions from West Virginia University, Central Michigan University, and State Historical Society of Iowa are now included in the site. Congratulations!

A few new improvements had been added:

– Performance improvements in search bar and tile loading

– “All Digitized Newspapers” sorting options – alphabetical by state or title (ignore articles), by number of issues, by earliest date available, by latest date available.

– Upgrade search engine (to SOLR 4.3)

Cool!
