The State Library has recently purchased the online newspaper archive for the Sydney Morning Herald 1955-1995. The database includes articles, captions, advertisements and birth, marriage and death notices.
Earlier issues of the Sydney Morning Herald are available on the Historic Australian Newspapers website, together with other historic newspapers from around Australia.
The database can be accessed via our website at How Do I Find – Electronic Resources – e-Newspapers. Please note that access is limited to those searching within the State Library building.
