We have several resources to help you find New Mexico newspapers and the library provides access to both historic and current papers.


  • A good source for historic New Mexico newspapers is the Newspaper Archive database. This full-text database Includes scanned pages of the papers so researchers can study page layout as well as read the contents. Papers are available from a variety of New Mexico communities including Albuquerque, Aztec, Deming, Las Cruces, Las Vegas, Portales, Roswell, Santa Fe, Santa Rosa, and Taos. Date ranges vary with some sources dating back to the 1800s.  
  • The library has other newspapers available on microfilm or in our Department of Archives & Special Collections. You can search for these in the library’s online catalog by title or by combining the location (for example, las cruces or dona ana county) with the word “newspapers.”
  • The library has digitized issues of NMSU’s student newspaper, The Round-Up, from 1893-1999. Additional issues may be found on microfilm.



  • A good source for current New Mexico  newspapers and other news sources is New Mexico Newspapers, a subset of the Newsbank database. This full-text database includes stories from newspapers, television stations, and other news sources in communities across the state, including ABC-KOAT, the Albuquerque Journal, the Associated Press State Wire service, the Clovis News Journal, the Gallup Independent, the Las Cruces Sun News, NBC 4 – KOB, and the Santa Fe New Mexican. Date ranges vary with most sources dating to the mid-2000s.
  • Some current news sources, such as the Farmington Daily Times, Las Cruces Sun News, and The Santa Fe New Mexican, are also included in news databases such as LexisNexis Academic. Date ranges vary.
