The archive now includes the following Athens newspaper titles: Athens Herald (1913-1923), Athens Banner-Herald (1923-1928), Southern Whig/Southern Herald (1838-1850), Clarke County Courier (1903-1913), in addition to the titles previously included in the archive: Athenian (1827-1832), Southern Banner (1832-1882), Southern Watchman (1855-1882), Daily/Weekly Banner-Watchman (1882-1889), Daily/Weekly Athens Banner (1889-1922).
