Welcome to the Illinois Digital Newspaper Collections.
This collection contains 116 newspaper titles, 137,665 issues comprising 1,470,118 pages and 6,887,660 articles.
Since 2005, the History, Philosophy, and Newspaper Library at the University of Illinois has been developing unique digital newspaper content. The works collected here include digital facsimilies of newspapers and trade journals in a variety of fields. Users may search, browse, tag, and correct OCR text to improve searchability and access.
The Illinois Digital Newspaper Collections is supported in part by the donors and grant agencies listed here
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign newspaper library holds millions of pages in print and microfilm, but only a small fraction of the collection has been digitized. A $5, $15, or $25 contribution will help us fund the cost of digitizing more newspapers for free online access.
