Wisconsin Newspapers available via BadgerLink

From Wisconsin InfoLink:

BadgerLink -- the state's online full-text library collections -- now has access to five years of complete PDF pages from more than 250 Wisconsin newspapers, dailies and weeklies....

The collection goes back to March 2005 and will continue to grow as current editions are added to the database. There is a 60-day embargo placed on the newspaper pages, so the most recent issues to search will always be two months old.


I've blogged about BadgerLink before. Remember that it is available to all Wisconsinites through the DPI. It's a wonderful resource with thousands of full text magazines and journals, newspapers and newswires, and full text reference books.

This service is available in many WI libraries, including the UW libraries, and through entry of a library card number. It is not available statewide through IP address authentication as are other BadgerLink resources. Users will be able to access it through the BadgerLink website by clicking on Newspapers under Resources by Type.
