Search Tips

Most newspaper databases will let you limit your searches by

  • Date range
  • State or region
  • Type of material or section of the paper (articles, editorials, ads, etc.)



Some older newspaper content may only be available on microform: microfiche or microfilm.
You can print out articles directly; or you can scan to PDF or other file format and email the files to yourself as attachments.
Need help finding or loading the microform? Please ask the Periodicals Coordinator or the librarian on duty at the Research Desk.
