North Carolina is participating in the National Digital Newspaper Program (NDNP), a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the Library of Congress (LC) which is endeavoring to digitize historic newspapers across the country in order to make them available online for research.

The Durham Daily Globe will be included in the list of titles to be digitized in 2013.

The Durham Daily Globe started in Durham, North Carolina in 1889 by publisher Edward A. Oldham. It was published daily with an additional Durham Sunday Globe published on Sundays from 1889 to 1894.

It had previously been called The Daily Tobacco Plant (1888-1889) and the Durham Daily Recorder (1886-188?).

Following 1894 the title changed to The Globe-Herald, the Morning Herald, and the Durham Weekly Globe. 

If you can’t wait until 2014 when the digital copies of this newspaper will be posted online to the Library of Congress’ Chronicling America site, you can view the microfilmed copies of this newspaper  at the following locations:

Duke University Library, Durham County Library, East Carolina University, the North Carolina State Archives, the State Library of North Carolina, and UNC-CH.
