These links will guide you to various sources for statistics and data.  If you are interested in manipulating a dataset on your own, please visit the Doe Library's Data Lab in 189 Doe.

Newspapers Online

A more extensive list of online newspaper resources are available from the Library's Electronic Resources Finder. Some of these are only aggregated collections of links to U.S. and international newspapers, not all of them contain searchable, full-text articles.

 

California Newspapers

Please Note: A librarian at Bowling Green University has compiled a guide that, according to her, lists all publicly accessible digitized historical newspapers. This is new, so I haven't had a chance to explore it, but it looks like it might be very useful for some of you.

In News/Micro you will find microfilm of many California newspapers. Few of them are indexed so you should prepare before your visit a list of dates of issues that you want to look at.

The San Francisco Chronicle is available full text online only up to 1922. Indexes for other years are available in News/Micro:
 
1913-1949 San Francisco Newspapers Index (Also see Microfiche 10904 Guide) MICROFICHE 10904 NEWS/MICRO
1950-1980 San Francisco Newspapers Index MICROFICHE 10503 NEWS/MICRO
July 1970-Sept 1975 California News Index AJ3.C16 NEWS/MICRO
1976- present San Francisco Chronicle Index AJ21. S25. N4 NEWS/MICRO

To find other newspapers, search for them by title in OskiCat. See: Searching newspaper titles in OskiCat:  The Movie!  (40 seconds)
