The State newspaper digital content

Richland Library is adding more digital content from The State newspaper to the Newsbank database. The new content will cover 1891 through 2015 and is accessible through Newsbank's "South Carolina Historical Newspapers" module.

The new content will be added as an ongoing project. The scanned images are searchable from 1891 – 2015. Searchable text from 2016 – present is also available through Newsbank. The digital 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 Richland Library borrower ID and PIN. There are several modules in this database. Select “South Carolina Historical Newspapers” for the digital content.
