Current Newspapers in Print

Current issues of U.S., Canadian, and international newspapers are available in the Current Periodicals and Newspaper Room, Memorial Library, Room 240 (Where is it?). Issues of U.S. and Canadian newspapers are generally kept for only one week, and issues of international newspapers are generally kept for only 3 months.

Current Periodicals and Newspapers Room staff maintains several paper lists of journals and newspapers to help users of the room locate what they need. Some of those lists are:

  • Alphabetical list of journals and newspapers
  • Journals and newspapers by country of publication
  • Journals and newspapers by primary language

Please note that these lists are only updated once a semester so while they can be helpful, the most up to date information will always be found in the Library Catalog.

Current issues of U.S. and Wisconsin newspapers are also available in the Journalism Reading Room, 2130 Vilas Hall.

Current and historical newspapers are also available at the Wisconsin Historical Society Library.
