The Easiest Way to Find Every Newspaper in the US

The fact is that all old newspapers ever published in the United States are not online. Much less than you might think.

So let’s just say for now that 15 to 30% of all U.S. newspaper pages have been digitized. Personally, I think that’s a very high number, but……

That leaves about 70-85% that are NOT online! Now, what the heck do we do? Offline research – that’s what. And the Library of Congress helps us out 

Below is a link to a QuickSheet that shows you how to find where almost all newspapers ever published in the U.S. are held – either online, in a library or archive, original newsprint, or microfilm. To obtain the two-page Quicksheet pdf for easy reference, you can view or download it by clicking on the link or button below.

  1. It made sense to me when you said that 15-30% of digitized newspapers must be high, and you could still do offline searching. This reminds me of my interest in reading the news and making myself aware of what is happening around me. However, due to my busy work schedule, it would be ideal for me to find an online news website.
