Newspapers are excellent sources of primary information. They often contain the first published accounts of an event, and provide windows into communities, contemporary social ideas, and local views on current events. The UO Libraries have a large collection of newspapers published in Oregon, and electronic access to newspapers published in the United States and around the world.
