This is an archived news item. Links may no longer be active.

At the end of June, the Texas Digital Newspaper Program reached the milestone of six million newspaper pages digitally preserved and freely accessible to the world. Represented within this most recent addition of one million pages are:

  • 90,976 newspaper issues
  • 34 newspaper titles
  • Texas communities and partners from as far west as Kermit, as far south as Pharr, as far east as Beaumont, and as far north as Follett

Digitization of six million pages is neither a speedy nor simple undertaking, and we thank all of the communities and researchers who have worked with us to make their newspapers available in what is becoming a vast and diverse collection of community history and identity, representing Texas across time to a worldwide audience.
