At the February 21, 2007 Lunch ‘n Learn, Bobray Bordelon and Elizabeth Bennett gave a presentation about newspaper resources at Princeton. The electronic holdings at the library make it relatively easy to locate primary source material. Not surprisingly, such sources have become very popular for faculty and undergraduate research.
To find the newspapers that are contained in the University’s collections search the Main Catalog. There, you can easily gain access to information on the years of coverage for each newspaper. You may find that the library has microfilm for the newspaper, or it may provide a link to the newspaper online.
