The Library has been able to access digitized issues of the Alma Record from 05 June, 1885 through 02 April 1914. This access is through the CHRONICLING AMERICA website, which provides information about historic newspapers and select digitized newspaper pages. This collection is produced by the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP), a partnership between the National Endowment For the Humanities (NEH) and the Library of Congress (LC). The program is a long-term effort to provide an Internet-based searchable database of U.S. newspapers. The Clarke Historical Library, Central Michigan University, is a local partner is this effort, and will be working to do more digitizing of our local newspaper resources. There is a "hot" link from the above "Digitized Alma Record" to the newspaper database located at the Chronicling America Website. Definitely, visit and utilize this resource. It is a print "time machine" returning visitors to an earlier Alma!!
