Finding PDF & Microform Formats of Newspapers at UNC
This research guide helps users locate digitized copies (e.g. PDFs) of American and major foreign newspapers, both recent and historic. In addition, this research guide also provides links to the microfilm collections at UNC Libraries for major American newspapers, along with some search strategies for locating micofilm copies of newspapers.
The instructions within this research guide are geared to address the the cite-checking needs of law journal staff and editorial board members. Thus, all instructions provide insight and advice for locating either microfilm or PDF copies of newspapers, rather than HTML versions.
Finally, a section is dedicated to electronic legal news sources, all of which will appear in HTML format.
Using the Interlibrary Loan Service for Newspaper Articles
The Interlibrary Loan Service ("ILL") at UNC Law Library serves current UNC Law students and faculty. This service is not available to those outside of the UNC Law School community.
The ILL will accept requests for rolls of newspaper microfilm from students. However, as the decision to lend microfilm is made by the lending library (not UNC), the Law Library cannot guarantee that these requests will be filled.
Note, also, that the ILL at UNC Law Library will not request scanned copies of newspaper articles from other libraries.
New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Financial Times Digital Subscriptions
The UNC Law Library is now offering digital subscription access to the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Financial Times to UNC Law students, faculty, and staff. This service is not available to those outside of the UNC Law School community.
The digital subscriptions are paid by the UNC Law Library, but each interested reader will need to register directly with the newspaper in order to have access. To properly register with each newspaper, use the following instructions:
If you have any questions or would like assistance setting up the NYT, FT, or WSJ digital subscriptions, please contact Donna Nixon (firstname.lastname@example.org). Faculty members can also contact their library liaisons.
