The UIUC Library has a very extensive collection of newspapers, both current and retrospective, in a variety of formats, including hard copy, microfilm, and digital reproductions. Our collection includes some Black newspapers in all formats. We've designed this guide to help you find the content you need.

The UIUC Library Newspaper Database is the first place to begin looking for newspapers in all formats including original print, microfilm, and
online newspapers. Search the database by title or use the drop down boxes to browse newspapers from specific countries, states, or cities. Combine multiple fields to narrow your search.
