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. 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: http://catalog.loc.gov .
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.
Beginning November, 2010, the Serial Division transferred the US newspaper volumes to an alternate remote storage facility. Although the move is essentially complete and volumes are once more available for researchers, please note that individual volumes or titles requiring problem resolution may still be unavailable in reopened portions of the collection.
We appreciate your understanding during this facility change. Please contact the reading room staff via Ask a Librarian before requesting bound newspapers. To better notify you regarding the status of a bound newspaper delivery, always provide a phone number where you can be reached so that we can confirm delivery.
