Our extensive collection of California newspapers is one of the California History Section's treasures. Dating back to 1846, it consists of more than 2,200 titles and includes long runs of at least one title from each of the 58 counties. The majority of our newspapers are on microfilm. However, we also have a number of specimen newspapers, and provide online access to several newspaper databases. If you have questions about any of our newspaper resources please feel free to ask us a question.
