Tennessee Newspaper Project

The Tennessee Newspaper Project (TNP) is part of the United States Newspaper Program, a national effort to locate, catalog, preserve on microfilm, and make accessible, newspapers published in the United States from the earliest colonial days to the present. Grant funding is provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities and technical support is provided by the Library of Congress. Tennessee's project is based in Knoxville at the University of Tennessee Libraries.

The project does not have any newspapers. It maintains a database of information of American newspaper holdings in the state of Tennessee and has access to information on the holdings in libraries across the country. Some papers can be borrowed through interlibrary loan; contact your local interlibrary loan department or the holdings institution listed in the database here for more information on accessing a newspaper.
