Historical newpapers and magazines

These databases will lead you to historical newspaper and magazine content. If you are researching a specific time period or event, they can be very useful. 

The University Libraries also have back issues of hundreds of newspapers and magazines available on microforms, in some cases dating to the Colonial Period. Microform collections are located on the first floor of Bracken Library. 

Back issues of additional magazines (and scholarly journals as well) are available in hardcopy in the Bound Periodicals collection on Bracken's second floor. 

Digital archives

These resources are digitized archival collections; that is, historical materials that have been photographed or scanned so that they can be searched for and viewed online.
