Hello,

Do you have any particular title or location in mind? We have the full-text of many newspapers online, and we have even more on microfilm. There are also news aggregators which go back to the 1980s and may cover editorial opinion.

The easiest way to check for online access is to go the Libraries' homepage > Click the Databases tab (next to the Get Started tab) > click "Browse Database by Subject Category" > click "Newspapers/News Sources (Current)" or "Newspapers/News Sources (Historical)" on the Database Finder page.

If you have a particular title,

  • Go lib.umd.edu  
  • Type the title into the search box in the middle of the page
  • Click "Search"
  • Narrow results to just newspapers using the "Format" section on the left side of the page (you may have to click "Show more" a few times before you see it). This will let you know if we have online or physical access to the title and over which dates.

 

Let us know if you are unable to locate what you need, and thank you for using AskUs!
