The California Newspaper Project is an 18 year effort by the CBSR to identify, describe and preserve California newspapers. Close to 9,000 California newspapers were inventoried in over 1,400 repositories throughout the state, 1.5 million pages of California newspapers were preserved and made available on microfilm, and 100,000 rolls of negative microfilm rolls are being processed for permanent storage at the UC Regional Library Storage Facilities.

The California Newspaper Project does not hold newspapers in its offices. Its database allows researchers to narrow their contacts to institutions holding the relevant titles.

The California Newspaper Project is a participant in the United States Newspaper Program. It is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities; the California State Library; and the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services, under provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act administered in California by the State Librarian.

Please Note: the BMI Catalog and the BMI, Data and Custom film databases have been moved to the California Newspaper Microfilm Archive.
