To locate newspapers using the Library Catalog, there are two major types of keywords that will help you find newspapers.  

  • Type of Work
    •  Use the word newspapers in the subject field of the search. 
  • Location of Publication
    • Use a term to indicate the place where the newspaper was published: city or state or country (sometimes).
    • This can be in any field as the location could be in the publisher information, title or subject. 

To perform your search:  

  • Go to Library Catalog under the Quick Links on the Library Home page.
  • Choose Advanced Search
  • Type newspapers in the first box.  Choose Subject from the All Fields box. 
  •  Type boston in the next box. Leave All Fields selected. 
  • From the Format box, scroll down and select Newspaper
  •  Press the Find button. 

The results screen will display.  

Look for "Boston mass" to be sure it's published in Boston.  Some records might not have been published in Boston, Mass.
