HIS 499-201: History in the News: Getting Started

A course research guide for Dr. Mokros - Senior Thesis Seminar: History in the News

Getting Started

In this research guide you'll find links and information to "all things news."

UK Libraries provides access to a collection of newspaper holdings in digital form, print, and microfilm.

This guide will help lead you to newspapers from a wide variety of perspectives, geographic locations, and dates.

Or search newspaper titles in InfoKat Discovery (Libraries' Catalog).
