If I donate a collection of newspapers to the Library of Congress, will it be digitized and available in Chronicling America?

The newspapers in Chronicling America are selected and digitized by state partners in the National Digital Newspaper Program. The Library of Congress digitizes newspapers primarily from Washington, DC. If you wish to nominate a title for digitization, we recommend that you reach out to the state partner and see if they would consider adding your newspaper to a future project. You can find their contact information at https://www.loc.gov/ndnp/awards/.

The Serial and Government Publications Division establishes digitization priorities for collections on an annual basis considering institutional initiatives. 

Unfortunately, we cannot promise that any material donated to the Library of Congress will be digitized nor can we provide a time frame for online access should the material be included in one of the many digitization projects that are identified every year based on our collecting priorities and policies.
