Today, the newspaper is being replaced by other news sources on the Web. At one time, though, newspapers were the primary source of information about current events. Through the Chronicling America project (chroniclingamerica.loc.gov), the U.S. Library of Congress and various institutions have been working to make the rich history of U.S. newspapers available on the Web via a standardized API. This API lets developers leverage media from the Chronicling America project to build research apps, news apps with historical context or apps for attaching content to family genealogy. In this article, I’ll introduce the Chronicling America API and build a Windows Store app that lets users research and view digitalized newspapers.
