Chronicling America is a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) / Library of Congress (LOC) project to digitize and provide free online access to historical English-language newspapers from across the United States. Just under 4 million historic newspaper pages have already been made available, with new content added quarterly. Coverage of Hawaiʻi figures and events can be found in Hawaiʻi newspapers as well as in newspapers from around the country. Chronicling America currently contains 557 newspaper titles from 30 states and the District of Columbia, spanning 1836 through 1922.

The National Digital Newspaper Program in Hawaiʻi

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa Hamilton Library has been participating in National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) since 2008. It has digitized and made available online 15 of Hawaiʻi’s newspapers, with new content added quarterly.

Purpose: Using the HDNP as a resource is an efficient way to provide local historical depth to all types of research. Instead of searching through mountains of micro fiche this online database is accessible now.

Methods: Our library has provided an online database to easily facilitate basic and advanced search functions utilizing 15 Hawaii newspapers with more content added quarterly.

Findings: Be sure to bring your laptop to the presentation. We will guide you through the process and help you to obtain data that is relevant to your area of expertise for your thesis and/or dissertation.

Implications: Presentations and papers are enhanced by including historical accounts from Hawaii newspapers.
