Whether you are doing research on newsworthy items in the area or just want to see the headlines from the day you were born, access to local newspaper archives is a good thing. In order to help you find the local news you’re looking for, we’ve created links that will search specific local newspapers in the newspaper databases we subscribe to. You can find these links in under our databases A to Z list or databases by subject page. Under Newsstand you will find links that will allow you to search the Iowa City Press-Citizen and the Des Moines Register. Additionally, in the description of EBSCOhost’s Newspaper Source Plus you will find a link that allows for searching the Cedar Rapids Gazette.
So if you are looking for local news sources, or a specific database to start your research, be sure to check out Article Databases A-Z or Databases by Subject, both accessible from the Library’s Homepage. Happy searching!
