Searching for newspapers for your research project? Whether you know the name of the newspaper, or you're interested in seeing what's out there, here are some good places to start.
For these databases, type in "newspapers" in the subject field. Enter keywords for your topic, and hit "Search." You may have to use the format limiters and choose "Newspaper," Microfilm," "Microform," and any others that are appropriate to you.
Getting Individual Newspaper Articles Via Interlibrary Loan
Have citations for the exact newspaper articles you need? You can get a scan of your article via Interlibrary Loan. For a newspaper article, be sure to have the exact date (month, day, year), the article title, author (if you have one), and the page number.
Pro Tip: after the first page number of your article, type in "-eoa" which stands for End Of Article. This can be helpful if your article does not continue on a contiguous page (as often happens in newspapers). Example: 3C-eoa
Getting Years of Newspapers on Microfilm via Interlibrary Loan
Many US libraries include holdings for their newspapers on microfilm, but may limit lending to other libraries. If you're having trouble borrowing a newspaper microfilm, please contact one of the librarians you see listed on the right of this page.
