Need Help Locating Newspapers?

The University of Delaware Library has access to hundreds to individual newspaper titles. Some are located within large newspaper database that might always be obvious to search within. This guide helps to direct you databases and newspapers, but you might need some extra guidance on finding specific newspaper titles. Here are a few ways to check our access: 

1. Database Publication List - Within large databases, you can find full lists of the publications you can find within. 

  • Start by logging into the database. Each database looks a little different, but usually you can find an option listed at the top of the homepage for "Publications." You can see a picture of the homepage for America's Historical Newspapers below. You can see an option for "Browse Publications" at the top of the webpage. Click on that option for the full list of publications.

2. E-Journals Webpage Search Bar /DELCAT Discovery

  • If you have a specific newspaper you are looking for, it can be faster to go directly to the E-Journals webpage on the library website to see what database the newspaper might located in. As you can see from the picture below, you will find a list of date ranges that tell you what years are covered in what database so you can choose the best option for your research. *Not all of our newspapers are indexed here, you might have to search directly in DELCAT Discovery or use the first suggestion to search within a databases publication list.*
