Below is a huge announcement for SC researchers. The first SC newspaper is now available on Chronicling America. This is the initiative by the Library Of Congress to digitized newspapers nationwide that are in the public domain. Hopefully, the post title link will take you to a Dead Librarian post that describes this project. The link to the Chronicling America homepage is in the links section of the blog.
The Library of Congress announced on Friday the latest update to Chronicling America. Various titles of the Columbia Phoenix are included in the update. See the links below :)
