History Article Databases




Search America's historic newspaper pages from 1789-1924 or use the U.S. Newspaper Directory to find information about American newspapers published between 1690-present. Chronicling America is sponsored jointly by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Library of Congress.

Washington State Library created an online collection of indexed newspapers beginning in 1852, which covers Washington's territorial and early statehood periods. These digitized pages from our microfilm collection have been indexed and are keyword searchable thanks to the efforts of volunteers.

The AAS Historical Periodicals Collection contains more than 6,500 historical periodical titles (newspapers, magazines, etc.) from 1693 to 1877.

Interlibrary Loan

Inter-library loan (ILL) is a service agreement in which participating libraries share items. The SFCC Library borrows materials from other library collections for our students and faculty. In turn, the Spokane Falls Library loans items to other libraries.

Spokane Falls faculty, students and staff may use this service at no cost. There are some limits on the number and types of materials that we may borrow.
