Kansas newspapers on microfilm
Kansas newspapers are among the Historical Society's largest and earliest collections, as it was originally founded by Kansas newspaper editors. There is a nearly comprehensive collection for the state, most of which is on microfilm. Kansas residents can borrow newspaper microfilm by placing a request with their local library for an interlibrary loan. Out-of-state researchers should contact KSHS reference staff for more information. Some microfilm is available for purchase.
