UA Libraries provides access to many online newspapers and newspaper collections, as well as newspapers in print and on microform.

The best way to find newspaper collections online is on the Databases page--just select Newspapers from the Type menu. You can also search right on the Databases page.

If you want to figure out if the UA Libraries has access to a specific newspaper, use the E-Journals search. Simply type the title into the search box and click Search.

To discover all the formats in which a newspaper 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: "Voter Participation and Strategic Uncertainty").
  • 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.
