Blue-shaded counties in the map above indicate that a newspaper from this county is available online or will be soon. For a full listing of Ohio’s digitized newspapers on Chronicling America and Ohio Memory, please see below.  You can access the digital edition of a paper by clicking its title.  Please note that if the paper’s title is not hyperlinked (blue), it is not available online yet but will be soon. For more information about our digitized newspapers, including where to find other digitized newspaper collections and search tips, please visit the FAQs.

Tip: Use the Up and Down arrows to sort the list alphabetically by title, city, county, region or special press type, or chronologically by date.  To find what you’re looking for even faster, try using the search box directly above the table.  For example, to find all digitized Cleveland papers, type in Cleveland, and your results will automatically only include entries with the word “Cleveland.” Please note that this search box only searches the list below and not the actual newspaper pages.
