Finding Chicago Newspapers on Microfilm

To locate specific publications, search the Library Catalog.  Some newspapers not in the UChicago Library may be available via Interlibrary Loan services; use WorldCat to search and request.  Below are additional resources for identifying Chicago newspapers.

Is There an Index?

With the exception of some major dailies, few newspapers available on microfilm are indexed.  Without indexing, researchers must often review weeks or months of a specific newspaper to find a specific article.  While some libraries (such at the Center for Research Libraries) will loan reels of newspapers, please be aware that some libraries require a specific article citation for interlibrary loan.
