Frequently Asked Question:
"How do I read an old article?"
Our “Help” page is here to, well, help. http://oaklandtribunearchives.tumblr.com/help
A list of local libraries and all their information is provided. You can also find other libraries with Tribune microfilm and books on http://www.worldcat.org/
If you are looking for an article published before 2001 and are not located in California, there are two websites with paid access to selected years of the Oakland Tribune microfilm. They are www.newspaperarchive.com and www.newspapers.com.
As of December 2013, Bay Area News Group is working with the University of California at Riverside to have all post-1922 content scanned and available to the public as part of the California Digital Newspaper Collection.
All newspapers published prior to January 1, 1923 are under public domain, dates after that are under copyright.
We are thrilled to be working with the CDNC to make the Tribune publicly accessible.
