Newspaper Research at UT

On This Page

This page provides information on where to find newspapers in print and microform at UT Libraries, including Tarlton.

This page also addresses finding articles in plain text, PDF, and other image formats.

Newspapers in Print at UT

You can find newspapers in print at many UT libraries.

The Briscoe Center for American History has a large collection of historical newspapers. Specific resources include:

Plain Text, PDF, and Page Images

As a general rule, current newspaper articles are unavailable in PDF and are instead presented in plain text format. This is the case with most of the databases on the popular newspapers pages of this guide. The databases most likely to provide page image PDFs are historical databases, including ProQuest.

Note that while some of the contemporary global databases (e.g. LexisNexis and Factiva) provide for PDF article downloads, these are not page images. Instead, they are PDFs of text documents.

A resource worth noting is Library PressDisplay. This database provides access to over 1000 newspapers in full page and full color images. The archive for each resource covers the previous 90 days.

Newspapers in Microform

The Perry-Castañeda Library offers access to historical and some contemporary content from more than 150 domestic and 50 international newspapers. They include:
