The Oregon Digital Newspaper Program (ODNP), housed at the University of Oregon Libraries, is an initiative to digitize historic Oregon newspaper content and make it freely available to the public through a keyword-searchable online database. The initial phase of the program, starting in 2009, has concentrated on newspapers in the Public Domain published between 1860 and 1922. There are currently over 700,000 pages of content available on the Historic Oregon Newspapers website, with some content published after 1922. Our Titles Selected page shows a list of digitized and forthcoming titles listed alphabetically by city.

The ODNP is also partnering with Newspapers.com to make even more historic Oregon newspaper content available online. Select Oregon content is being made available at Newspapers.com for a fee, and users accessing the website from the University of Oregon campus will be able to view select Oregon content at no cost.

As of January 2016, current born-digital Oregon newspapers from participating publishers will also be part of the ODNP, with content published in 2015 and beyond available at Historic Oregon Newspapers online. For more information about current newspapers and ODNP, visit our Current Newspapers page.

The ODNP was also constructed to help facilitate the digitization of Oregon newspapers by outside organizations/individuals. If you are interested in participating, please contact us.
