Primary Sources: Newspapers

This is a research guide to finding primary sources that are accessible through the MSU Duane G. Meyer Library or through the open web.

Newspapers are considered primary sources because they are often the first official record of events. They also often carry obituaries, birth announcements, and information about other anniversaries.
