Newspapers at the Archives & Library of the Ohio History Connection


Online Collections Catalog

You can search our newspaper holdings using our Online Collections Catalog. You can search by city, county, newspaper title, and/or year. You can also add “npdb” to your search term(s) to limit the search results to newspaper titles only. For example, a search for "Cleveland npdb" will return newspapers covering the city of Cleveland.

Another way to search our newspaper holdings is through the catalog's Browse by... feature. It lists our newspaper holdings by county, city/village and date. The browse feature also includes listings for some of our special press titles (African American newspapers, European American newspapers, Jewish newspapers, campaign newspapers, labor newspapers, etc.). Once you have made your Browse by selection, you can use the Filter feature to refine your search.


Browse Newspapers


Once you have your search results, click on the title to see a description of the paper and a list of the rolls of microfilm or hardcopy newspapers we hold for that title. Newspapers with "Roll" numbers are available on microfilm. They can be viewed in our Library during public hours and are also available for interlibrary loan. Newspapers labeled with an "N" number and volume designation are in their original hardcopy format. They are not available for interlibrary loan and must be viewed in our Library during public hours. Some hardcopy newspapers may not be available for use due to poor condition and are noted as such in the catalog description.
