Native newspapers:

Many Native American newspapers published in New Mexico are available in the UNM Library. For historical titles, do a search in the Library Catalog (see above) or a specific publication or use a subject term such as Navajo newspapers or Indians of North America New Mexico newspapers


Many historical New Mexico newspapers are available only on microfilm, most of which is stored in the basement of Zimmerman Library. Search for newspapers in the Library Catalog (see above) by entering a paper title, or a place of publication followed by the word newspapers

"What newspaper was published in [town] in [date]?"

The best resource for answering this question is the U. S. Newspaper Directory from the Library of Congress. After you have entered a search term and brought up a catalog record, click Libraries that have it in the blue bar at the top of the record. If it is not available at UNM, this will tell you where to look. Be aware that many historical newspapers, especially ones from small towns, have not survived or are missing many issues.
