A guide to finding current and historical newspapers online


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. We've designed this guide to help you find the content you need.


Getting Started

If you already know the year, location, or newspaper title you are looking for, the UIUC Library Newspaper Database is the first place to begin. Search the database by title or use the drop down boxes to browse newspapers from specific countries, states, and/or languages.  Combine multiple fields to narrow your search.
