California Counties 5-Year Plan

In 2014 the CDNC and the California State Library proposed a 5-year program to digitize at least one title from each county in the state through at least 1923, when copyright starts. The map below of California counties represents our best efforts to identify the important newspapers for each county. We’d like to hear from you if you think there are more important titles for your county, and to coordinate our efforts with local institutions. Please contact us at Since the titles on this low-res version are often difficult to read, we've provided for downloaded PDF image here: PDF.
