Nominate a Newspaper for Digitization

Illinois Newspaper Project (INP)

In September 2022, the Illinois Newspaper Project (INP) received a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to continue digitizing historic Illinois newspapers as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP).

As a result, the INP has launched an opportunity for libraries, museums, historical societies, genealogical societies, and cultural heritage institutions across Illinois to nominate titles to receive long-term preservation and open accessibility through Chronicling America, the national digital newspaper database hosted by the Library of Congress. Newspapers will also be added to the Illinois Digital Newspaper Collections, the state’s largest digital newspaper collection created and managed by the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.

Information about this opportunity, eligibility, and the nomination process can be found on the INP website's "Participate" page at
