Millionth Page in Chronicling America Program

Today is a significant day for the Library of Congress:

The Library of Congress and the National Endowment for the Humanities today marked a major milestone in their partnership to digitize historic U.S. newspapers and make them widely available to the public on the Internet. During an event held at the Newseum, Deanna Marcum, Associate Librarian for Library Services at the Library of Congress, announced that the Chronicling America website—a free, national, searchable database of historic American newspaper pages published between 1880 and 1922—recently posted its millionth page.

Congrats to both the LOC and NEH.
