Newspapers and News Sources at the OSU Library

The OSU Library has subscriptions to several U.S. newspapers, and also provides access to many online titles.

Newspapers in Paper Format

Most U.S. newspapers purchased at the OSU Library are kept in paper form until microfilm arrives, and the microfilm provides the permanent file. Current issues are often found on reserve at the circulation desk. Check the OSU Catalog by title to see whether we own a particular newspaper, and to determine which issues are still in paper and which are on film.
