The CT Digital Library is excited to announce that the Historical Hartford Courant is now available through the iCONN portal.

The Historical Hartford Courant database will include full-page coverage from issue 1, volume 1 of the newspaper starting in 1764 with coverage to December 31, 1922. This searchable digital archive of more than 280,000 pages of important historical content will offer article-level search results, article zoning and edited metadata, including headlines, bylines and first paragraphs.

All academic libraries, all public libraries and branches, historical society libraries, and all schools will have statewide access, as well as any Connecticut government department. There will be remote access for anyone with a public library card.
