Utah Digital Newspapers main page

Starting at our main webpage, you have three options for viewing newspapers:

  1. Search All Newspapers
  2. Search/Browse A Single Newspaper
  3. Browse By County

Option 1: Search All Newspapers

The first option is searching across the entire newspaper collection.

Utah Digital Newspapers search box   Utah Digital Newspapers search box

Simply enter in the keyword(s) you would like to search and either press "Enter" or click on the "Go" button. If you want your keywords to be searched on as a phrase, enclose the words in double quotes. (See above right example.)

Your search results will be displayed on a separate search-results page. (See "Search Results Page".)

Option 2: Search/Browse A Single Newspaper

The second option from the main webpage is to select a single newspaper for searching and/or browsing. To do this, click on the "down arrow" at the right side of the "Select Newspaper" box, and a complete list of the individual newspaper titles appears below. Move your mouse down the list or navigate using the scroll bar on the right to highlight the title you're interested in. Once that title is highlighted, click again and you'll go to the page for that specific newspaper. We call this page a "secondary page". (See "Secondary Pages for Individual Newspapers".)
