The strength of the Society's paper and microfilm news collection lies with historical newspapers, not the most currently published editions.
The Wisconsin Historical Society library reading room does not have current print daily newspapers. Here are alternative ways to access today's local newspaper:
1. Your local public library will have a copy of the local newspaper available.
2. Databases accessible via computers in the Historical Society's library reading room provide access to thousands of newspapers digitally. Click here to access.
3. UW-Madison Memorial Library Periodicals Rooms maintains a large collection of current, print newspapers. To visit the Periodicals Room, stop at the entrance desk with your photo ID to obtain a visitor's pass.
