New: LOC Newspaper Navigator

Introducing Newspaper Navigator

New to our database list is Newspaper Navigator, an image dataset of Chronicling America, historic American newspapers, from the Library of Congress.

"Newspaper Navigator is a project being carried out by Benjamin (Ben) Charles Germain Lee as part of the Innovator in Residence Program at the Library of Congress. The goals of Newspaper Navigator are 1) to extract visual content from 16+ million pages of digitized historic American newspapers in Chronicling America and 2) re-imagine how you, members of the American public, can search the visual content using machine learning techniques." - About Newspaper Navigator

One of the best things about this resource: "All Newspaper Navigator photos in the app and dataset are in the public domain!"
