The collection of popular online archived newspapers at the Ohio County Public Library has been expanded! We are pleased to now offer the Wheeling News Register from 1919-1976 in our digital collection online. The digitized versions of the Wheeling News Register, come in addition to recent additions of the Wheeling Intelligencer in 2021.
The digitized newspapers are indexed, making them searchable by names, keywords, and dates. Users can browse by date, search, view, and download pdfs of full newspaper pages. Users can also clip and share articles, headlines, pages, and stories using the ohiocountywv.advantage-preservation.com interface. Patrons and guests can access the newspapers at any time through a computer, tablet, or smartphone - no library card needed!
The Library has been working with Advantage Preservation over the past four years to digitize our microfilmed newspapers. The Wheeling News Register papers from 1919 and 1976 were previously only available on microfiche sheets. Digitizing these microfiche sheets will allow for easier access for patrons to complete research.
