The Minnesota Historical Society (MHS) is pleased to introduce the Minnesota Digital Newspaper Hub, a new searchable website that makes hundreds of thousands of pages of Minnesota newspapers available online in one central resource.
The Hub offers geographically and culturally diverse newspapers from dozens of communities around the state. Users will also find a unique selection of African American, American Indian, agricultural, business, and labor papers.
MHS created the Hub in collaboration with the Minnesota Newspaper Association. MHS began digitizing its historic newspapers in 2007 through a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities’ National Digital Newspaper Program.
As an active partner, SELCO has used Arts and Cultural Heritage Funds for Library Legacy activities to digitize almost 180,000 pages from newspapers published in the southeastern Minnesota counties. SELCO continues to focus on adding regional resources. MHS is committed to adding thousands of newspaper pages each year.
