The Digital Library of Georgia (DLG) recently launched the new Georgia Historic Newspapers Archive, which features historic newspaper titles from around the state. This archive is now available via the Library’s A-Z Database List, GIL-Find, and Discover.

Since 2007, the Digital Library of Georgia has been providing access to the state’s historic newspapers through multiple, online city and regional newspaper archives. The DLG’s newest website, Georgia Historic Newspapers Archive, continues that tradition by bringing together new and existing resources into a single, consolidated website.

The Georgia Historic Newspapers Archive includes some of the state’s earliest newspapers; important African-American, Roman Catholic, and Cherokee newspapers; and issues from Augusta, Atlanta, Columbus, Fayetteville, Houston county, Louisville, Thomson, Sandersville, Waycross, and Waynesboro. The latest additions bring the total number of newspaper pages available free online through the DLG to 825,000 pages.

Like the older DLG newspaper sites, the Georgia Historic Newspapers Archive provides newspaper issues that are full-text searchable and can be browsed by date and title.
