Periodicals - Austin History Center


Over three thousand titles of current and defunct magazines, journals, newspapers, and newsletters of local interest are available here at the Austin History Center. Not only do we offer the local daily and weekly newspapers, but we have a substantial collection of newsletters published by local organizations, businesses, and neighborhood groups. We are happy to check to see if we have a particular uncataloged title. You an also use the list below to browse the titles we have.

We have a complete run of the Austin American-Statesman since 1871 on microfilm.  We do not retain original copies of this title beyond three months from publication date.  See the Austin American-Statesman Resource Guide for a listing of the indexes available for accessing the paper.  Access to the microfilm is chronological.  It is not possible to search for a person's name on the film. If you are searching for an obituary, you will need a date of death to begin your search.  The Austin History Center performs obituary searches as a paid service.  Please see our reference services for more information. The Library also subscribes to a database with historical coverage of the Statesman and two other databases with recent coverage.
