New Content in Archive of Wisconsin Newspapers
08/11/2016

Approximately 85,000 pages of pre-2005 newspapers from 12 communities around the state have been added to Archive of Wisconsin Newspapers.
The newspaper digitization was made possible through Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) funds awarded to the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction by the Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) as well as funding provided by the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium (WPLC). WPLC worked with the Wisconsin Historical Society, WiLS, a non-profit membership organization serving libraries and cultural organizations across Wisconsin, and the Wisconsin Newspaper Association (WNA) to scan, upload, and host the content on Archive of Wisconsin Newspapers.
Wisconsin residents now have access the following historical newspapers from Archive of Wisconsin Newspapers:
