About this collection

Welcome to the Illinois Digital Newspaper Collections.

This collection contains 59 newspaper titles, 108,254 issues comprising 1,242,986 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.

Please click the Donate button and specify that your donation is supporting IDNC, which is part of the History, Philosophy and Newspaper Library.
