Welcome to the RI Digital Newspaper Project

The RI Digital Newspaper Project is an ongoing endeavor to make Rhode Island’s historic newspapers freely available online. Providence Public Library (PPL) and the Rhode Island Historical Society (RIHS), as part of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and Library of Congress (LOC) National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP), have undertaken an extensive newspaper digitization project that will result in a wealth of Rhode Island’s historical newspapers being digitized and widely available through the Library of Congress website for the first time in history.
