Finding Newspapers

Finding digitized newspapers can be done a few ways. If you do not find it using this method, try using the main library search bar, or contacting the Ask a Librarian service.

Use the UT Libraries Journals search to find the Austin-American Statesman:

1) Click on the Journals link below the main search bar on the main UT Libraries homepage

2) Search for the publication (ex. Austin-American Statesman). Note the many different versions and years covered. 


3) Finding the right version is a game of trial and error. Scroll down to see if these editions include the years you want to access. Once you find it, click on the link for the collection under "View Online".

4) Log in with your UT EID & Password and begin your journey by searching the entire publication, search within the issue or browse by year:
