Chronicling America Legacy Site: Data Freeze

From the Library of Congress:

The Library of Congress has transitioned the longstanding Chronicling America website to a new digital environment alongside other Library of Congress digital collections. Read previous updates on this page for more information. While we are maintaining access to both sites into Spring 2024, after March 1, 2024, we will cease data updates to the legacy site. Please visit the new Chronicling America website for the most recent newspaper additions. To assist in identifying newly added content, please consult the Recent Additions to Chronicling America guide. As a reminder, Digital Humanities scholars and researchers who access the collection via computational methods will continue to have access to bulk OCR but should transition to using the API at Bulk OCR downloads remain accessible from the longstanding OCR Data page until further notice. Later this year, on a date yet to be announced, existing URLs to Chronicling America pages will re-direct to the new environment. Stay tuned to this page for more updates.
