Getting started

Search SOLO for holdings of individual newspapers. The British Library also has a useful Newspaper catalogue where you search by location or place.

Not all early English newspapers in the Bodleian are catalogued on SOLO. Use the Milford & Sutherland to discover what is held: A catalogue of English newspapers and periodicals in the Bodleian Library, 1622-1800 - by R. T. Milford and D. M. Sutherland. (Oxford, OUP, 1936) An annotated catalogue with details of newspapers which are not catalogued in SOLO. [LRR B1.1202]

Tip: Check out Newspapers and other online news sources from the 17th to the 21st century for help on finding printed newspapers and using online newspapers.
