German-Language Newspaper Access in North America
The scope includes German-language newspapers regardless of geographic location. The emphasis is on historical newspaper holdings; lists of current online editions can be found in the Internet Public Library and elsewhere. General news is the main focus; specialized, narrow, trade or niche newspapers are not well represented. As a complement you can also consult the German-language listings of ICON (International Coalition on Newspapers) and for eNewspapers the entries of DigiZeitungen.
Organization: Newspaper titles -- whether local, regional or national in scope -- are listed alphabetically by city of publication. City names are given as recognizable in common English usage (e.g., Vienna); vernacular equivalents are given where the spelling differs (e.g., Wien). Each holding institution is listed alphabetically by name, along with years of holdings and an indication whether interlibrary loan is available. Formats are indicated by icons as follows:

North American institutions are encouraged to add titles and holdings relevant to German newspapers in their permanent possession.
