There are two different strategies for working with newspapers:
Use the Journal search tab in OneSearch or try WorldCat for papers not held by the University Libraries. Records for newspapers will tell you where to find current paper issues and older years on microfilm. Some newspaper records can be quite complicated, as newspapers may have many title or publication changes.
For newspapers outside our collection, try WorldCat or use a printed catalog such as:
For papers outside of Arkansas or outside of our collection, you can browse the date indexes in:
Brendel, Shirley J. Arkansas Newspapers. Fayetteville, AR: University Libraries, 1987.
Lathern, Edward Connery. Chronological tables of American Newspapers, 1690 1820. Worcester, MA: American Antiquarian Society.
You will then have to check OneSearch to see if we own those newspapers. Note that these tools may list titles not in our library.
