Digitized Newspapers [Reference Shelf]

The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions has posted and updated a listing of international newspaper repositories.

The listing includes a PDF documenting United States newspaper repositories state-by-state including digitized and microfilmed collections. I have abstracted the digital (online) access sites below for your convenience. There is more information and links to programs in the original PDF.

I have also added online digitized newspapers not in the IFLA list, and have marked those resources with an asterisk (*) to demarcate them. I have restricted this listing to archives with free access. Sites with paid access to historical newspapers are many, and outside the scope of this list.
