The Historic Maryland Newspaper project, a National Endowment for the Humanities grant project, has digitized over 211,000 Maryland newspaper pages since 2012, and is currently in its third grant to digitize more than 100,000 additional pages. The newspapers are ingested into Chronicling America, the Library of Congress database, which is freely accessible to the public, and now contains over 11.7 million newspaper pages published across the US. This presentation will demonstrate several features of Chronicling America and other extras so that librarians can use this resource in reference inquiries or other projects.
