This site, devoted to the history of newspapers in the United States and to US history in general, offers several notable American history resources. Essays by members of the Newspaper Collectors Society of America, with which this site is affiliated, cover a range of topics relating to the history of newspaper journalism. The essay archive is searchable. Resources of interest to collectors include a primer on collecting historic newspapers, a price guide for old and historic newspapers, and a list of newspapers most often reprinted. For those with other interests in history, there is an index of history-related web sites, organized by category. About half of the entries in the index include a brief statement of what kind of information the user is likely to find on a particular site. As a meta-index of historical resources this should prove useful to historians interested in many eras and issues.
