Newspapers at the UGA Libraries: On the Web

A guide to finding newspapers online and on microfilm at the UGA Libraries, including historical and international newspapers.

On the Web


Most newspaper websites offer at least some amount of free access to recent articles, with some limitations. Commonly these limitations might restrict you to viewing only a certain number of free articles per week or per month, and you might be required to register for an account or pay a subscription fee in order to view additional articles.

Newspaper websites are somewhat less useful if you are seeking older articles, as often you will have to pay a subscription fee in order to view the full-text of older articles. In other cases, the newspaper website might contain only recent articles and not offer any access to older articles. If you are seeking access to full-text articles that were published longer ago than what you are able to access on a newspaper’s own website, try the newspaper databases provided by the UGA Libraries that are listed elsewhere throughout this guide.

Links to Newspaper Websites:

Search Tip

Not finding the article you want? Search tip — if you saw an article on a newspaper website, the headline (title) of the article might be different in a newspaper database from the headline displayed on the newspaper's website. If searching by headline does not find any matches, try searching for some keywords that describe the content of the article.
