The Georgia Historic Newspapers project of the Digital Library of Georgia provides free access to digitized online versions of historical GA newspapers. The site is currently in development and content is being added regularly. All previously digitized newspapers are scheduled to be incorporated into this new Georgia Historic Newspapers site.

Until that time, users may also continue to access the existing online newspaper collections for particular cities or regions of Georgia listed below:



UGA is home to the Georgia Newspaper Project which has been microfilming Georgia newspapers since the early 1950s. As a result, the UGA Libraries own microfilm of most newspapers in Georgia. The GNP provides a list of Georgia newspapers (alphabetical by city) owned by UGA in microfilm. Dates available are included (overall coverage is 18th century to the present). Microfilm is available for viewing and printing/emailing/downloading in the Main Library basement.

Need to find a call number to locate microfilm for a newspaper? Search the UGA Unified Newspaper Database or search the GIL catalog.
