Image of Arkansas Democrat Gazette on NewsBank platform.If you are looking for current newspapers, the Library subscribes to the Log Cabin Democrat, the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, and the New York Times in print. These can be found in the Current Periodicals collection on the 2nd floor. As print newspapers are delivered by mail, sometimes current issues are not available until the following business day.

The Arkansas Democrat Gazette is in the process of changing its print publication frequency from daily to Sunday only. While many libraries and individual subscribers are only receiving Sunday issues in print, the UCA Library is still receiving daily print issues at this time. However, the publisher has indicated that by the end of 2019, Monday through Saturday print issues will be suspended throughout the state, except for in Northwest Arkansas.

The Library currently offers online access to daily issues of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette through the NewsBank news database. Access to the PDF (or image) version is available online Sept. 9, 2017 to present. Text only access is available online from January 1994 to present, although a few issues are not available online. The database allows users to email, print, download, or save articles to Google Drive. Users can either save the whole newspaper page or select specific content on the page. The platform also enables users to export publication data to selected citation management tools or capture citation data in APA, MLA, Chicago, or Turabian format.

Chronicle of Higher Education online issue archive​Torreyson Library also maintains an online license to the Chronicle of Higher Education, for which new issues are published Monday through Friday. Users on campus can access content from 1989 to present, including Special Reports, Facts and Figures, Job Alerts, and Chronicle Newsletters. For full access off-campus, create a free account with the Chronicle using your UCA email address. Please note that while the issue archive only displays Chronicle issues from 2015 to present, you can use the search box to access older content.

For a full listing of current and historical newspaper resources in all formats, see the Newspapers LibGuide. You can also search for online access to specific newspaper and journal titles in Publication Finder.
