The National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP), a partnership between the National Endowment for Humanities (NEH) and the Library of Congress, is a long-term effort to provide permanent, free access to historic newspapers selected and digitized by NEH-funded awardees in the United States. The NDNP incorporates newspapers published from 1690-1963 into a national digital newspaper resource, Chronicling America, where the digitized pages are made available.
Between September 2013 and August 2019 the University of Florida in partnership with the University of Puerto Rico-Rio Piedras contributed over 300,000 pages of content to Chronicling America as part of the state and territories involvement in the NDNP.
In 2019, UF and UPR-RP welcomed a new partner, the University of the Virgin Islands. Over the course of the next two year (through August 2021), approximately 100,000 of historic newspapers from Florida, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands will be digitized and made available to the public.
