Catalog of Digitized Historical Newspapers

February 8, 2011 – 1:34 PM

Looking for free (open-access) digital versions of historic newspaper articles?  A good first step might be to check NewspaperCat, a Catalog of Digital Historical Newspapers produced at the University of Florida.  It currently indexes more than 1000 digital newspapers from the United States and Caribbean, covering a range of dates.  It can be searched by location or newspaper title, and provides links out to the digitized papers at their library hosts around the country (including, of course, those at the Digital Library of Georgia).

For lots more advice on finding newspaper articles, old and new, by topic or by location, see the UGA Libraries Subject Guide on Finding NewspapersAsk a Librarian if you need help.

  2. The URL you provide for Newspapercat is wrong.
    Here’s the correct one: http://ufdc.ufl.edu/hnccoll

  3. Thanks – the url has changed twice – I guess they had a few kinks to iron out! – so I will update our post.
