Find Newspapers

How do I find newspapers?

  • The Library subscribes to the full content of some newspapers, as listed in the geographic categories below.
  • Full-text versions of individual newspaper articles can often be found along with magazine and journal articles in some of the Library’s specialized subject databases, by searching on subject, author and date terms. These databases are searchable by subject as well as author and date, and they are listed in the geographic categories on this guide.
  • Individual newspaper articles can also be found in our PRIMO catalogue
    • Enter your subject search terms into the PRIMO search box
    • Click on “newspaper articles in the left menu under “Refine my Results”
  • Some newspaper resources are “Open Access” for everyone in the world to use, while others are only accessible to all University of Guelph users once they have logged on with their campus credentials.
    • Open Access resources are marked with a red tag in the list. 
  • There are many online collections freely available for areas of the world not listed here. Get in touch with the Library to find out more.

What if the newspaper I want isn't digitized?

The Library has an historical collection of newspaper titles in microfilm format. These are housed in compact shelving in the Library’s lower level.

Use Primo to search for newspaper titles to see if they are part of this collection.
