More Hawai'i Newspapers Online

As part of an ongoing project funded by several large National Endowment for the Humanities grants, Hawaiian Collection curator Joan Hori announced today that another round of 19th- and early-20th century Hawai'i newspapers has been added to the Library of Congress' open-access "Chronicling America" site, where they are now full-text searchable. The newspapers in this project are all English-language editions, and complement the ongoing work on The Ho'olapa'i: Hawaiian Nupepa Collection (a joint venture of Alu Like, Inc., Bishop Museum and UH-Hilo's Hale Kuamo'o) to digitize Hawaiian language newspapers. 
For more on the Library's participation in the Chronicling America project, click here. For more on researching in early Hawaii newspapers (both English and Hawaiian language) see also this previous blog entry. Below is the complete list of newspapers currently available on the Chronicling America site. For each newspaper listed, the dates immediately following the title indicate the overall publication period of the paper (question marks indicate an unclear final publication date). Dates that appear below the paper title indicate those that have been digitized as part of this project. The "Yes" that follows certain of the date ranges indicates that a historical essay on the newspaper (composed by UH Library staff) is also available online:
