We just received word this afternoon that two newspaper titles, the Anderson Intelligencer and the Charleston Daily News, have been added into Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers. To date, 29,178 newspaper images (of the 100,000 total number of images we intend to reach during this grant cycle) have been approved and uploaded by the Library of Congress in Chronicling America. Also, you may be pleased to learn that more Columbia Daily Phoenix content has been added during this upload cycle as well!
