Medallion from the 1908 Olympic GamesThe Olympics: A Guide to Reference Sources

Library of Congress Resources: Newspapers

One may determine the Library's newspaper holdings, both domestic and foreign, through the reference staff in the Newspaper and Current Periodical Reading Room, LM133. Although this reading room has holdings of English-language newspapers from Asian countries, the depth of coverage will be somewhat less than the Asian- language papers, which are held by the Asian Division, LA132. The Olympic coverage in these newspapers is useful for topics such as the Tokyo and Seoul Olympics, and Beijing's unsuccessful bid for the 2000 summer games.

Issues of Slavic-language newspaper titles published in the Cyrillic alphabet are in the European Reading Room, LJ 249.

Use the chart listing the dates of the Olympic Games to aid in locating articles in newspapers that are not indexed.
