See the News & Newspapers guide for links to online resources and lists of newspapers on microfilm available in the Main Orlando Campus Library.
The only online database to which UCF currently subscribes with full text newspaper coverage earlier than 1985 is New York Times, Historical (ProQuest) (1851-2006).
UCF does have the full text on microfilm of other U.S. newspapers, the earliest of which is the Boston News-Letter / Massachusetts Gazette (1704-1770). Very few of the newspapers have indexes, so you'll be researching by dates.
The listings for each state include links to some free online resources, some of which provide indexing or full text. Some of the indexes provide full text for a fee. For example, the indexing of the Chicago Tribune is available online (1852+) with individual articles available for $4. NOTE: The full text of the Chicago Tribune (1849+) is available on microfilm in our library.
The University of Central Florida is a member of the Center for Research Libraries which has a large collection of newspapers available through interlibrary loan.
