The newspaper collection at the Library and Research Center consists primarily of St. Louis newspapers. Many of these newspapers are available on microfilm; some are only available in hard copy.
The following are some highlights of the newspaper collection:

  • Missouri Gazette/Missouri Republican, 1808-1919
  • German-language Westliche Post, 1857-1938
  • St. Louis Post-Dispatch, 1919-1948 and 1961-present
  • St. Louis Argus, 1915-1986 (African American newspaper)
  • St. Louis Palladium, 1903-1907 (African American newspaper)

Approximately 90% of the library's newspaper titles are listed in the Online Library Catalog; however, in many cases these catalog records do not include the specific dates of the newspaper.
