Historical Newspapers by Title

British Columbia

The majority of BC historical newspapers are available in microformat. Search the library catalogue for the name of the newspaper, using the 'journal title' index. If you aren't sure which newspaper you want, ask at the Reference Desk at Koerner Library; or consult the Union Catalogue of British Columbia Newspapers to find the titles of newspapers published in BC, then search the catalogue to determine if we have the title in our collection.
