This guide will assist you in finding newspapers online and in hardcopy. The description of each entry in the Current Newpapers and Historical Newspapers pages of the guide indicates whether the text found in the source is provided in HTML or PDF format. The HTML entries provide only the text of an article, with maybe some photographs. The PDF entries usually provide scanned or photographed pages from the original hardcopy issue, including all illustrations, advertisments, and surrounding articles. This may be useful for getting a sense of the greater historical context of the time and place in which an article was written.
The Finding Newspapers Off-Campus provides information about a few regional libraries where you may go to find hardcopy or microfilmed issues of additonal newspapers.
Newspaper articles may also be found by searching the library's ProfSearch discovery tool and limiting the ensuing results by Newspaper Article. Although quite a large amount of material may be found this way, be aware that any search engine which searches across multiple databases, such as ProfSearch, will always sacrifice accuracy and thoroughness for the sake of convenience. More detailed research may be done by searching within the specific newspaper databases and websites found elsewhere in this guide.
