Newspapers at VPL

A guide to finding current & historical Canadian & international newspapers at Vancouver Public Library.

INTERNATIONAL NEWSPAPERS IN PRINT & MICROFILM

The Library keeps a minimum of two months of selected international newspapers (unless otherwise specified below).

Some papers are located at select branches only (see each title below for locations).

We do not archive or index international newspapers except where indicated under the titles below.  Most international newspapers have current issues indexed online through PRESSDISPLAY

The only historical international papers we keep on microfilm are: New York Times (1919, 1939, 1954-current), Seattle Times (1971-1994), Washington Post (1991-1994), West Shore from Portland, Oregon (Aug. 1875 - May 1891), & Financial Times of London, UK  (Jan. 1956-Dec. 1999).

Most newspapers can be found on Level 5 at the Central Library, unless otherwise noted.
