Colorado State Library:
A person easily can lose hours exploring the Colorado Historic Newspaper Collection Web site. Stories and reports from Colorado’s communities take on a rich, compelling flavor when read as they actually appeared in the local newspaper. Offering teachers and students online access to more than 115 local and regional newspapers published between 1859 and 1923, the CHNC continues to grow through local community fundraising efforts. With its collaborative, statewide focus, the collection represents 66 cities and 41 counties in the state and contains more than 430,000 digitized pages.
