On March 18, the Library of Congress updated the Chronicling America Web site to add more than 800,000 newspaper pages, published from 1836 to 1922 in the U.S. In addition to the 25 states and the District of Columbia already represented on the site, this update adds newspapers from Indiana and North Dakota as well as additional French and Spanish newspapers from Arizona, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Texas. Other updates include improved use on iOS devices, added navigation features, and updated US Newspaper Directory information.

  1. Mahalo for all of YOUR work!! A quick question (prompted by the post about Chronicling America)–is it known what is happening with the Honolulu Star Bulletin and Advertiser archives?

  2. One of the additions – The Polynesian published in Honolulu 1840-1941 and then 1844-1863. Hooray!!! Check out their article January 9th 1849 article about that busy city Honolulu. Looks like it was a slow news week.
    The Daily Bulletin, The Evening Bulletin and the Honolulu Star; predecessors to the HSB are already digitized. In fact the Daily Bulletin was one of the first to be made available. Lots of other great short lived papers on are the site and can provide confirmation of events from our more familiar sources and even some new information. I believe that the Pacific Commercial Advertiser is being digitized now and will soon be available.
