Kentucky Newspapers Microfilm Ordering Database

Provides access to the University of Kentucky's holdings of Kentucky newspaper microfilm masters. This database can be helpful in searching by Kentucky city or county or date range. To search the 1860s, use the truncation character *, e.g., 186* in the search field.

This database does not include the UK Libraries' regular collection of service copy microfilm, but it does provide access to the listings of the Kentucky newspapers that have been microfilmed at the University of Kentucky, including historic papers filmed during the Kentucky Newspaper Project and other newspaper back-files as they become available. Although some titles are no longer published, approximately 175 active newspapers were regularly filmed. The microfilmed newspapers are available for viewing in the Periodicals Dept. and, if you are at another institution, you can request microfilm through your Interlibrary Loan department. Not all Kentucky newspapers available for viewing are included in this database (e.g., The Lexington Herald-Leader and the Courier-Journal). To find other available Kentucky newspapers, search InfoKat, the Libraries' online catalog, or consult the librarians at the Reference Desk.
