Other Tips

  • Many newspapers offer individual subscriptions to archives for a small fee. For instance, the Dallas Morning News offers an ePaper + subscription for $4.95 a week for individuals (if your department had budget for it). If you start searching here: those options appear.
  • Austin Public Library has Newsbank, a database of newspapers and broadcasts. Within Newsbank, you can go to an A-Z source list to see the titles, or you can search for sources by location. You must live in Austin and have a library card (you can get one virtually here) to use the service.

Newsbank has these Texas newspapers (plus many others):

  • Austin American Statesman from 1989 – present
  • Dallas Morning News from 1984 - 2016 
  • Houston Chronicle from 1985 - 2020
  • If you don't see a newspaper you'd like here, you can sort all of our Databases by Type: Newspapers and Newswires, to see what we have access to online. See image below and use the second column from the left to sort by Type.
