South Carolina Digital Newspaper Program Digitizing Historical Newspapers Across South Carolina

An initiative of The University of South Carolina Libraries, The South Carolina Digital Newspaper Program (SCDNP) digitizes historical South Carolina newspapers as part of the National Digital Newspaper Program, a grant-funded partnership with the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Library of Congress.

SCDNP facilitates online access to these free, fully accessible, and full-text searchable newspapers. Since 2009, SCDNP has digitized 103,352 newspaper pages from 19 historical S.C. newspapers, ranging in date from 1860 to 1922. In 2011, SCDNP was awarded a second NDNP grant and will continue to add 100,000 more newspaper pages, ranging in date from 1836 to 1922, in 2012-2013.

You can access these newspapers in Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers, hosted by the Library of Congress, In addition to S.C. newspapers, you can search over 5.2 million newspaper pages from 32 participating states across America in Chronicling America.
