Oregonian Newspaper Index


Oregonian Newspaper Index

The Oregonian Newspaper Index is an index to The Oregonian newspaper from 1851-1987.

After you use The Oregonian Newspaper Index to obtain a citation to an article you need, you may obtain the article with these methods:

    1. The Pacific University Forest Grove Campus Library has The Oregonian on microfilm from 1956-current.  Please visit the Library in person to use the microfilm.
    2. If you are not able to visit the Library in person to use the microfilm, you may either (1) use Interlibrary Services to request a copy of the article.  This service is for current Pacific University faculty, staff, and students. Or (2) visit the Multnomah County Library website.  Access to The Oregonian is available to Multnomah County Library cardholders.


The Oregon Newspapers Index contains 845,000+ records. Article index records still to be added are from bound volume 1925, which has been partially completed in alphabetical order by subject. The final record was entered August 8, 2007, at 11:45 A.M. by Robert Hulshof-Schmidt, Oregon State Library. Proofing, authority control and elimination of duplicate records will continue throughout the 2007-2008 academic year.
