The Digital Military Newspaper Library is an ongoing project to house, organize and preserve contemporary and historic military newspapers and periodicals. These publications represent all Branches of the U.S. military from many geographical regions with an emphasis on the state of Florida, but also including a submarine base at King’s Bay Georgia, National publications for each Branch, periodicals from both Puerto Rico and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, along with historic content from the Panama Canal Zone. The Digital Military Newspaper Library's continuing goal is to archive and preserve military perspective by offering full geographical representation of historic through current issues of select U.S. Military publications.

This undertaking will seek to build on the success of other projects including the Florida Digital Newspaper Library and the Caribbean Newspaper Digital Library.

Other related digital collections include the Publications of the Florida National Guard, as well as the Confederate Veterans Oral History Collection, World War II Oral History Collection, Korean War Oral History Collection, Cold War American Society Oral History Collection, Vietnam War Veterans Oral History Collection, and the U.S. Army Core of Engineers Oral History Collection from the Samuel Proctor Oral History Program.
