This database of New Mexico newspapers contains descriptive information about the newspapers--publication dates, publishers, previous titles--and where copies are available. No one institution holds every newspaper, but this database will assist researchers in locating where the newspapers may be found.
The New Mexico Newspaper Project, part of the United States Newspaper Project (USNP) began in 1992 and ended in 1996. The project consisted of locating, cataloging and microfilming newspapers published in New Mexico. In 2010, New Mexico became part of the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP). So far,over 200,000 pages of historic New Mexico newspapers have been digitized. The project continues in 2014 as we begin digitizing another 100,000 pages. Digitized newspapers from the NDNP project are available in this repository, New Mexico Historical Newspapers, and alongside newspapers from around the US published before 1923 from Chronicling America, a service of the Library of Congress.
Hosted by the University of New Mexico Libraries, funding for these projects came from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the University of New Mexico Center for Regional Studies.
