The National Endowment for the Humanities is now accepting proposals for the National Digital Newspaper Program. The National Digital Newspaper Program is a partnership between NEH and the Library of Congress to develop a searchable database of historically significant newspapers published in the United States. The Library of Congress hosts the site for this project at Chronicling America, a collection of information and digitized newspapers published in the U.S. and territories between 1836 and 1922 available on the web for anyone to use. The collection can now accept not only English titles, but Spanish, French, Danish, German, Hungarian, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese and Swedish publications as well.
Applications are due January 15, 2014.
