History in the News: Getting Started

A special topic guide for researching the news from a historical perspective

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.

*Please feel free to contact me at any time for research assistance and consultations.*


A helpful starting point may be the Libraries' A-Z Newspaper Databases list.

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