For more than sixty years the University of Kentucky Libraries have preserved Kentucky newspapers, making them freely available to researchers, geneaologists, and the general public. Today, the Kentucky Digital Newspaper Program (KDNP) brings those newspaper collections to a global audience through an online interface that's fully keyword searchable, repleat with color page images, calendar browsing, and web-based html newspaper content alongside traditional print media. We never stop adding to our collections or refining our technological processes.
