The Florida Digital Newspaper Library (FDNL) exists to provide access to the news and history of Florida. All of the  historic and current Florida newspapers in the Florida Digital Newspaper Library are openly and freely available with zoomable page images and full text.

Florida’s newspapers are a state treasure, the historian's and genealogist's best friend, and the community's collective memory. In the world of newspapers, today's news is already history, from the moment their stories are printed.


The Florida Digital Newspaper Library as a project has been funded in part by grants from Florida’s Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA) Grants Program, from the National Endowment for the Humanities' National Digital Newspaper Program, and from the Institute for Museum and Library Services. It is also funded by the University of Florida, with the assistance of digital library endowment from the Estate of the late Governor and Mrs. C. Farris Bryant, and by Florida Heritage Project funds from the University of North Florida and the University of South Florida. The Florida Digital Newspaper Library is indexed by the Florida Electronic Library. We are greatly indebted to Florida's independent newspaper publishers, including members of the Florida Press Association. Without their contributions to the Library, current content would not be available. Your support of these contributing newspapers is encouraged.
