This summer, we are working to upgrade the research experience by making ongoing improvements to our Research Guides.
You may encounter changes in the look and feel of the Research Guides website along with structural changes to our existing guides. If you have any questions or concerns about this process please let us know.

Primary Sources: Historical U.S. Newspapers

Welcome to this United States Historical Newspapers Subject Guide. The newspapers that are presented are from digital collections that have been curated by others and uploaded to the internet. Some of the Newspaper runs may be missing issues or date ranges.

The dates of coverage are included in an entry for a newspaper.  Also, the dates of coverage were correct when they were added to the entry, but may have changed since they were recorded. 

While this guide does provide a substantial list of newspaper titles to be accessed online, this is not to say that there is not more out there. (If you come across a newspaper title on the web and feel it should be added to this guide feel free to email me. The site must be a free site, not locked down behind a paywall.)   

The letters on the tabs pertain to the particular state(s) that fall under that particular letter. 

Example: To find the Toledo Blade, click on the "O" for Ohio.
