The Georgia Tech Research Institute in collaboration with eHistory.org at the University of Georgia, have created the U.S. News Map: a tool that allows students and researchers to explore historic American newspapers with ease. In addition, the News Map allows users to identify geographic and chronological patterns in the history of journalism. The News Map features newspapers that are part of the Library of Congress's Chronicling America Historic Newspapers collection that were published between 1789 and 1922. To use the News Map, visitors can search for any keyword and select start and end dates. From here, visitors can see and explore the frequency of the selected search term over time (via a timeline) and across geography (via pins on a map). When users select one of the map pins, they can see the year and publication where the term appeared. From here, users have the option of exploring the newspaper in PDF format.
