List of Historical Newspapers Online

Postby mwald » Thu Mar 19, 2015 9:04 am

For anyone who is interested here is the link to the Penn Libraries list of historical newspapers online. They changed the format, it's not as well organized as before but everything appears to be there.

The old forum had a Research Materials section. This one doesn't so I put it under Books.

Does anyone know if historical archives (years 1940-1980) of the Detroit Free Press and Philadelphia Evening News are available anywhere other than Detroit and Philadelphia area libraries or the Library of Congress?

Looking for an online source but don't think they exist.

Lately, googlesnewspaperarchives.com has been difficult to navigate. It keeps freezing on me after I zoom in to read and article. if anyone has found a way to avoid that, let me know.

I may have to go to a paid archive subscription. Recommendations?

Newspapers.com seems to be the one that is picking up the best selection of papers. I would recommend a one-month subscription to try it out.

Last couple weeks have had the same problem with google newspaper archives. Once I zoom it the 'paper' will go white so then I refresh and I have to go through steps to confirm I'm human ("click all the pictures of sidewalks"). Then it'll work for a couple pages I check out then repeat. Incredibly annoying.

"Newspapers" is really weak when it comes to their WA collection, which is what I'm interested in. I pulled all the information that interests me from all their WA papers in the span of the free week trial.

Which is what I recommend, you can use it for a week for free. If they had more I'd just subscribe but every handful of months I check back and my account has the free week trial option back and I sign up for it again and there's never any new WA newspapers -- or years added to the papers they do have.

Yes, this is very frustrating. I can read one article at a time but cannot move to the next page. I have tried both the Chrome and Edge browsers as well.

I was hoping there was someone I could report this issue to, but I don't think there is much support for these archives anymore. I know they aren't adding to their content but I don't think they want what is there to be functional. At this point, the archives are not functional.

I seem to be having better luck reading it on my iPad using Safari.
