Guide to Viewing Images from Digital Newspapers

The Digital Newspapers page is the best way of finding and viewing all of the newspapers that the Maryland State Archives makes available online. Titles are listed alphabetically, along with the dates they were published, question marks appear when exact dates are unknown.

How to Navigate

After clicking on a title, you will be taken to a page with an expandable tree view of all the available dates by decade. To view a more detailed list, click on the “+” sign to open up the list of dates within the decade. To view a newspaper simply click on the hyperlinked date.

The hyperlink will open up an e-publication where each page appears as an html frame surrounding a gif image. Holding down the CTRL key and pressing the "+" or "-" keys will make the image larger or smaller. Also, holding down the CTRL key while scrolling the center mouse wheel will change the zoom level. Navigate through pages by clicking the “next” or “previous” buttons, or by jumping to a specific page number.
