Newspapers

The University Library provides access to over a thousand newspapers in a variety of formats, including print, microfilm, and electronic access. Start with the News Research Guide to explore our major newspaper databases, and discover current, historical, local and international news sources.  

Current print issues are located in 203 North Hatcher. Print newspapers are shelved the day they are received in the library; any gap is due to shipping intervals. See our staff at the Serials reference desk in 203 North Hatcher for help finding the issue you need.

Looking for a particular newspaper? Find out what we have by searching for the title in Mirlyn, the library catalog.
