News & Newspapers

Use newspapers to find the latest news, research a topic about our area, track current debates, or do historical research

Why Use Newspapers

Newspapers are a great resource to use if you are researching a local topic or you want to find up-to-date information on a current topic. Historic newspapers are a great resource to use for primary source materials on historic topics.

Newspapers in the Library

The MJC Library subscribes to several newspapers in print. You can find current issues of these on the newspaper rack in the Library for your reading pleasure. Except for the most recent edition, you can check newspapers out to take with you. We keep print copies of each issue for six months.

The Library subscribes to many more newspapers electronically through our Library Databases.

You can search WorldCat, the library catalog, to see if the MJC Library has access to the newspaper you want. Search WorldCat below:
