40 Newspaper Titles added to DigitalNC

Headmast for August 31, 1899 issue of the Durham Daily Sun

Another 40 newspaper titles up on DigitalNC this week! In this batch are many titles from all over the state (including nine from Rutherfordton) and a little local baseball history.

Featured in the May 5, 1902 issue of the Durham Daily Sun is the very first game of the Durham Tobacconists, the baseball team that would go on to become the Durham Bulls in 1913. While they lost their inaugural match to the Charlotte team 12-2, the author is optimistic and writes that “everything may soon be going their way.” They dropped out of the season two months later.

Over the next year, we’ll be adding millions of newspaper images to DigitalNC. These images were originally digitized a number of years ago in a partnership with Newspapers.com. That project focused on scanning microfilmed papers published before 1923 held by the North Carolina Collection in Wilson Special Collections Library. While you can currently search all of those pre-1923 issues on Newspapers.com, over the next year we will also make them available in our newspaper database as well. This will allow you to search that content alongside the 2 million pages already on our site – all completely open access and free to use.

This week’s additions include:

Charlotte

Durham

Elizabeth City

Fayetteville

Gastonia

High Point

Kinson

Oxford

Plymouth

Raleigh

Roanoke Rapids

Rockingham

Rutherford College

Rutherfordton

Southern Pines

Southport

Troy

Wilmington

Starting this week, we will have an update every Friday on new titles being added to our newspaper collection during a year-long project to bring already digitized content from the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) and Newspapers.com onto the DigitalNC newspaper platform. 

This week we are sharing a list of the many new titles on DigitalNC that were brought to us by the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP) in conjunction with the North Carolina Collection at UNC-Chapel Hill Libraries. The NDNP is a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress with the intention of creating a vast, searchable database of newspapers and other historical documents. While you can currently search all of the NDNP issues on the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America website, adding those same issues to our  newspaper database will allow you to search that content alongside the other papers on DigitalNC.  The titles in this batch include:

Over the next few weeks we will be uploading more newspapers from NDNP. If you want to see all of the newspapers we have available on DigitalNC, you can find them here. Thanks to UNC-Chapel Hill Libraries for permission to and support for adding all of this content as well as the content to come. We also thank the North Caroliniana Society for providing funding to support staff working on this project.
