15 million and still going strong!

At the NJ Digital Newspaper office, we’ve been very excited to contribute New Jersey’s historical newspapers to Chronicling America. Today we’re celebrating the fact that Chronicling America now has 15 million pages of content from participating states and territories.

To mark this milestone, we’re participating in an online celebration and hashtag party. Follow the @rutgers_scua twitter feed throughout the day where we’ll be posting images from New Jersey newspapers featuring the number 15 million, just like the ad below.
