Prompted by an article posted in the July 28, 2011 edition of, I am posting links to 30 digitized historic Oregon newspaper titles, as well as links to other Oregon Newspaper resources.

The University of Oregon has posted 180,000 digitized pages from 30 Oregon newspapers at their new Historic Oregon Newspapers website.

The website was made possible through the Oregon Digital Newspaper Program (ODNP) and is the culmination of over two years of work by program staff at the University of Oregon Libraries, in collaboration with the Library of Congress, the National Endowment for the Humanities and a number of state agencies & stakeholders.

For additional resources dealing with Oregon newspapers, online and on microfilm, check the links at the end of the alphabetical place listing.
