Newspaper Directories

The Library of Congress Newspaper Directory searches U.S. newspapers published since 1690 by place and date.


If you're trying to identify what newspapers were published in a particular place at a particular time, the Boston Public Library has digitized a number of newspaper directories for various years. 

Dates of Coverage

If dates of coverage are included in an entry for a newspaper, the source may or may not include all issues within the listed time period.  Dates of coverage were correct when they were entered, but may have changed since then.
