Newspapers & News Services: Overview

Does the Library provide access to many newspapers?

Current newspapers

You can access a wide range of Australian and overseas newspapers (as well as popular magazines) via our various databases.

In many cases databases give you more extensive backfile content than what you'll get for free an individual paper's own website.

Some newspapers are available via more than one database and the dates of coverage in each may vary.

Historical newspapers

You can also access many older Australian and overseas newspapers.

Some of these are freely available via open access collections (eg. Trove). Others are only available via library databases (eg. UOW subscribes to the Sydney Morning Herald's digital archive).

Many other older newspapers are not available online. However you can often find options for accessing these in hardcopy or on microfilm at different libraries.
