Historical Newspapers on Microfilm

Because historical archives of major Houston daily newspapers are not available online, the library provides archives of these papers in the older microfilm format:

  • Houston Chronicle (Oct. 1901 - Dec. 2007)
  • Houston Post (Jan. 1976 - April 1995)
  • Indianola Bulletin (Mar. 1852 - May 1854)
  • Texian Advocate (Nov. 1846 - Jan. 1856) - shelved with Indianola Bulletin

Microfilm reels and printers are located on 5th Floor North, near the Circulation Desk.
