Below is a listing of U.S. newspaper volumes held in storage for the Newspaper & Current Periodical Room based on an inventory conducted Summer, 1998. Arranged by state, then city, it lists the bound volume control number, total volume count, and summary holdings for each title (title may vary from what is listed). The inventory does not provide detailed holdings; dates listed may have unspecified missing issues. Also, "misc" refers to miscellaneous issues that have been collected separately for each state; these portfolios may include single issues that supplement the holdings of cities listed. Increasingly specific holdings information is provided in the title record in the library catalog (catalog.loc.gov); where available, the online holdings substitute holdings indicated in the below list. Detailed holdings of portfolios and bound volumes are available by contacting Reading Room staff.
US newspaper volumes are stored in remote storage and on-site in the Serial and Government Publications Division. For detailed holdings of US newspaper volumes, including location information, please search the Library’s catalog: catalog.loc.gov. Please note that when microfilm is available for issues also held in bound format, the microfilm will be served to researchers.
Newspapers in original format are not available for Interlibrary Loan, and must be viewed on site. For more information about access to bound newspapers see: Requesting Bound Newspapers from Remote Storage.
Please contact the reading room staff via Ask a Librarian before requesting bound newspapers. Also, to better notify you regarding the availability of a bound newspaper, always provide a phone number where you can be reached so that we can confirm access.
