HISTORICAL newspapers

Searching newspaper archives 

State Library of Victoria

Sometimes what you are searching for is not recent. How can you search newspapers from 19th and early 20th century? How can you look at advertisements in the newspaper and see how the newspaper looked?

Below is a video tour of the newspaper resources of the State Library of Victoria. It lists research tools and gives tips for finding items when the date an item appeared is not known. The item you are looking for could be an article, personal notice, or an image in a newspaper. 

If you already know when an item appeared in a newspaper then the How to find newspapers guide can be used to find online, microfilm and printed editions of newspapers.

Trove at the National Library

Trove is a project at the National Library of Australia where they have digitised library images and you can OCR search. As it is OCR and the newspapers are reproduced from Microfilm records the OCR is not always as accurate as searching a full text database but give it a go....you will be surprised!
