The Coronado Newspaper Project of the Coronado Public Library and the California Digital Newspaper Collection at the University of California Riverside is now complete!
Coronado’s newspapers from 1887 through 2013 are now digitized and available on the internet. What does that mean to you? No more spending endless hours at the library searching through microfiche for information. You can do research from the comfort of your own home.
The newspapers are fully searchable by subject, keyword, linked words and dates, and search results bring up articles or full pages of the newspapers. Images of specific articles can also be retrieved. Researchers and people with any interest level can look up stories, businesses, homes they lived in, obituaries, sports, and even advertisements. A researcher’s dream, having the newspapers so easily accessible means that more Coronado history will be uncovered. Historians will continue to fill in those pesky missing puzzle pieces.
Coronado’s old newspapers include: The Coronado Mercury, The Coronado Strand, the Coronado Saturday Night, The Compass, The Coronado Journal, The Coronado Eagle, and the Coronado Eagle and Journal. The Coronado newspaper collection is hosted at the California Digital Newspaper Collection site.
The project was funded by the Judith Bond Bequest.
