129K Historical VT Newspaper Pages Now Freely Available
All of the titles digitized under Phase I (2010-2012) of the Vermont Digital Newspaper Project are now online at Chronicling America. Nearly 130,000 historical Vermont newspaper pages can be searched or browsed on the website. One can search all of Vermont’s titles or individual titles using a simple keyword search. Since the pages can be accessed for free from any computer connected to the internet, this literally puts Vermont’s history at your fingertips. Chronicling America now boasts titles from all over the state, including Bennington, St. Johnsbury, Middlebury, Brattleboro, Burlington, St. Albans, Newport, Rutland, Woodstock, and Montpelier.
These Vermont titles are just a fraction of the more than six million pages of freely available, keyword-searchable historical American newspapers on Chronicling America. The standards used to digitize and archive these six million-plus pages ensure that they will be preserved for decades to come. This tremendous archive of American history “as it happened” has the backing of the Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and will be with us for the foreseeable future.
