Answer

Our collection includes newspapers in print, microform, and digital formats. There are also several online resources that offer access to newspaper collections.

There are lots of different ways to access these materials, but here are some suggestions.

  • If you're just getting started or if you're looking for new resources: 
    • Use Scout to search for your topic, then use the limiters on the left side of the page to narrow your results.
  • If you are looking for a particular newspaper:
    • Check to see if we have it in electronic format by using the E-Journals search
    • If we don't, or if you want to see all the formats in which it is available, use Scout to search for the title. This usually works best when you place the title in quotation marks: "Tuscaloosa News".
  • If you are looking for a specific article:
    • Use Scout or Google Scholar to search for the article title (in quotation marks works best: "West Memphis Three Set Free").
    • Use the E-Journals search or Scout to search for the publication in which it appeared then search by title, author, date, volume, number, etc.

You can also go directly to the newspaper databases listed below for online access to articles and other content. If you're looking for more, go to the databases page and select Newspapers from the list of item types.
