The Historic Maryland Newspapers Project

The Historic Maryland Newspapers Project is an ongoing effort to digitize Maryland's newspapers and make them accessible for free on the Library of Congress' Chronicling America website. Our project is funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities' (NEH) National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) grants. As part of the program, we adhere to NDNP standards for title selection and digitization.

Since being awarded our first NDNP grant in 2012, we have digitized 107,414 pages from Baltimore, Hagerstown, and Cumberland newspapers. In 2014 we were awarded a second NDNP grant to digitize approximately 104,000 pages of Maryland newsprint through August 2016, with the goal of broader geographic representation. The third NDNP grant to digitize 100,000 pages was awarded in 2016, with the goal of representing additional diverse communities--political minority groups, labor groups, the Polish community in Baltimore, and strengthening geographic representation in western and southern Maryland.
