Vermont Newspapers

Print and Microfilm

The UVM LIbrary provides access to many current and historical Vermont newspapers in print and on microfilm. This page provides information about current daily newspapers, current weekly and monthly newspapers, and historical newspapers.

Current Daily Newspapers

You can find current issues of Vermont daily papers in Bailey/Howe Periodicals on the second floor, shelved by title. Click on a title for information about back issues in print and on microfilm.

Current Weekly and Monthly Papers

You can find current issues of selected Vermont weekly and monthly newspapers in Special Collections. Click on a title to find the call number and information about back issues in print and on microfilm. Issues of titles marked with an asterisk (*) are retained for the current calendar year only.

Historical Titles

To identify and locate historical Vermont newspapers in print and on microfilm, use the Vermont Newspaper Project Catalog. Search by title, place of publication, or keyword. For example, a search for "Brattleboro" as place produces 31 records. The record for each title will indicate which libraries hold the title. To find titles at UVM, search the library catalog. Some titles can be obtained through interlibrary loan. Microfilm listed as held by the Vermont Department of Libraries is available for viewing at the Vermont State Archives in Middlesex, Vermont.

Tip: Where are the microfilm readers?

Microfilm scanners are located on the first floor of Bailey/Howe Library and in Special Collections.

Free Press Publisher Pleased about Microfilm

Bailey/Howe Library is in part a memorial to David W. Howe, who managed the Burlington Free Press for most of his working life. When the Howe addition was dedicated in 1980, his daughter noted that one of his great pleasures was having all back issues of the Free Press preserved on microfilm and readily available for reference at UVM and libraries across the country.
