18th and 19th Century Newspapers


Background:

Microfilm is located on the first floor of the Main Library in the compact shelving. Ask for help with microfilm at Circulation Desk; you may use the phone in the first floor reading room for this purpose.

Additional Notes :

This is a list of newspapers that the UA Libraries have in print or microform - if it is also available online a link is provided. For electronic newspapers only available online search the catalog by the publication city and subject word "newspapers."

Also, check the Library of Congress Chronicling America site, as they are adding more full text all the time for older American newspapers.
