Newspapers are one of the most versatile and heavily used sources of information for researchers, genealogists,
students and the general public. Feature stories, society news, classified and picture advertisements, school
and church announcements, news from surrounding towns, editorials and cartoons, all give the reader the sense
of "being there." Often the papers contain historical information that is not available in any other source.

About Colorado Historic Newspapers from 1859 to 1923:
The Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection (CHNC) currently includes more than 600,000 digitized pages, representing
160+ individual newspaper titles published in Colorado from 1859 to 1923. Due to copyright restrictions, CHNC does
not generally include newspapers published after 1923. CHNC can digitize through 1963 if publisher permission can be secured and funding identified.
Ongoing support for maintaining and providing access to CHNC is paid for with state funds administered by the
Colorado State Library and History Colorado. CHNC continues to add new pages when community funding
is located to pay the costs of digitization.
