The State newspaper digital content

Richland Library recently contracted with information provider, Newsbank, to digitize The State newspaper from 1923 to 1986 for Richland Library customers. This project fills in the gap for searchable online coverage of The State newspaper. The digitization has been completed. Richland Library now provides scanned and searchable images of The State newspaper from 1891 – 1986 and searchable text from 1987 – present for library card holders, 24/7. The new content has become a major resource for Richland County historians and genealogists.

To access The State digital images go to Newsbank and click the “start now” button. Type in your Borrower ID and PIN. There are several modules in this database. Select “South Carolina Historical newspapers” for the digital images from 1891-1986.

Just another example of the library’s pledge to Access Freely.
