The UW Libraries has a large collection of newspapers published in the United States and around the world.  Current and historic newspapers may be available in paper, online, and on microfilm.  

The Microform and Newspaper Collection maintains a large current domestic and foreign print newspaper collection. Current newspaper subscriptions are acquired to support classroom needs. A few subscriptions come by airmail, but most are shipped via surface delivery.
