Library of Congress newspaper holdings are available from the Library of Congress Catalog.

If you find yourself viewing raw MARC catalog records (with numbered fields), please note the following:

  1. The 362 field gives the dates a newspaper was in publication, NOT the holdings of the Library of Congress.
  2. If the 050 field has a number like 7256X, it usually means we have only a few loose issues of the title. The X means the paper is stored a large paper folder known as a portfolio. Portfolios usually contain only a few single issues.
