Newspapers at UIUC Libraries

The UIUC Library has a very extensive collection of newspapers, both current and retrospective, in a variety of formats, including hard copy, microfilm, and digital reproductions. Not all of them are included in the online catalog. Many, but not all, online newspapers can be found through the "Online Journals & Databases" search on theLibrary Gateway

When searching for a particular newspaper title, try searching it first in the online catalog. Look for more than one record for each newspaper, as our holdings may consist of a combination of hard copy and microfilm, for example, and there may be a separate catalog record for each format. Most of these will be located in the History, Philosophy and Newspaper Library, but in some cases, the material will be found in another part of the UIUC Library.

Some newspapers that are not found in the online catalog may be included in the Library's separate online database of newspapers. This database is searchable by place of publication and by keywords from the title. For Brazilian studies, try indicating Brazil as the country, or simply search for all Portuguese language newspapers.

A further resource for finding Brazilian newspapers is the Center for Research Libraries. You can search for these publications in the CRL catalog
