Scheduled Offline Dates:

  • April 4th 9 AM to April 5th 5 PM
The NYS Historic Newspapers project hosts 7.5 million pages of historic newspapers from 520+ titles from every county in New York state.  This massive endeavor consumes more than 30 terabytes of storage as every new title added requires more space.  To keep up with the more than a million pages added every year we’re upgrading our storage technology platform to provide easy and quick expanding storage. Unfortunately, this will cause the very popular newspaper site to be offline while the upgrades to the software and hardware are completed.

At the moment we don’t know the exact dates that site will be offline. However, we’ll update this page as we know more, so that our users can plan around those times.
