    Hi, John.

    The Colorado Historic Newspapers Collection is guided by United States copyright law. In some cases, we are allowed to digitize past 1923 but only if we have the specific permission of the publisher/copyright holder.

    You can find an easy-to-use guide on copyright from the American Library Association’s Office for Information Technology Policy here: http://librarycopyright.net/digitalsl…

    For Colorado newspapers that are not available in the CHNC, or for dates past 1923, please contact the Colorado Historical Society:

    As a quick supplementary note to Mary’s response…

    The Record Journal of Douglas County is the paper with the longest run (to date) in the collection, covering 1908-1941. This only could be achieved because of the partnership between Douglas County Library District, the Colorado Community Newspapers publishing company and those of us at the State Library who manage the operations of this historic newspaper collection.

    One of many fine examples of public/private partnerships, illustrating how governmental organizations like ours continue serving Colorado citizens in cost-effective and innovative ways.
