"Extra, extra - read all about it!" Washington Digital Newspapers at the Washington State Library has a new website<http://newspapers.sos.wa.gov/>! And it's mobile friendly!

New features include:

*         "One hundred years ago..." front pages from Washington newspapers

*         Links to WSL's microfilm collections for a full list of titles, publication histories, and essays about the newspapers' influence on their communities

*         Browse newspapers by title, calendar date, or full text searching

*         Search on the go using your smartphone or tablet

We are beginning to merge Washington State Library's Historic Washington Newspapers Online collection with the titles digitized for the National Digital Newspaper Program<http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/> for full text searching of all digitized titles. The newest titles digitized for Washington Digital Newspapers will be found exclusively at this new website.

Watch for over 50,000 digitized pages to be added to this new website by the end of 2016.
Check out the Tacoma Evening Telegraph now and soon we'll have:

*         The Eatonville Dispatch

*         Dankse Kronike (Danish/English)

*         Dat Moi (Vietnamese/English)

*         Centralia Daily Hub

*         Anacortes American

All newspapers dated pre-1923 are considered public domain and are an excellent primary resource for teachers, students, genealogists, and researchers. Questions about the new website?  Please email Shawn Schollmeyer at shawn.schollmeyer at sos.wa.gov<mailto:shawn.schollmeyer at sos.wa.gov>.
