About the South Carolina Newspaper Program

Thanks to National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) funding from 2009-2015, University of South Carolina Libraries and the South Carolina Digital Newspaper Program (SCDNP)  digitized over 300,000 pages and 100 historical South Carolina newspaper titles, ranging in dates from 1836 to 1922. These papers are available through the Library of Congress' Chronicling America site. Since then, the University of South Carolina has continued to digitize and make available on their local repository,  Historical South Carolina Newspapers, SC newspapers from all over the state. These selected historical newspapers on both repositories at LC and USC are freely accessible and full-text searchable.
