Newspapers: Home

Newspapers currently subscribed to, that are retained in microform, and in digital formats.

Overview

The UW Libraries subscribe to a number of print editions of state, national, and international newspapers in order to provide information on current news events, as well as a resource for investigating on the reporting of historical events at the time the events occurred.

This guide provides information on accessing current digital and print newspapers. If you want information on accessing historical newspapers, this guide titled Historical Newspapers provides all the necessary information about physical and digital collections at UW.

The best starting point for finding any newspaper are the ProQuest databases. These databases are organized geographically, such as U.S. Newsstream, Asia Newstream, European Newstream, and all other major geographical regions. See the complete listing of all newspaper databases at this link.
