Cardiff Newspapers Listings

Newspapers are a vital source of information for researchers across a whole range of subjects.

  • They give eye-witness accounts to major historical events worldwide
  • They provide a valuable record of the times they covered
  • They include priceless visual images for many topics (pre-photography also)
  • They chronicle the changing politics and passions of society over time
  • Local newspapers are an immense source of local and family history

Cardiff's newspaper holdings (university and public library) range from the 17th Century to the 20th Century; from single issues on topics of importance, to runs of over a hundred years for the most important titles.

(Some weekly 'news magazines' have been included in this list for completeness, plus a few monthly 'papura bro' etc. of importance).
