Directions for How to find Honolulu Newspaper Articles from 1929-Present

The Honolulu Advertiser and Honolulu Star-Bulletin are available through the library in two formats, online and in microfilm.

Full-text articles from the Star-Bulletin are available online from March 18, 1996-present. Full-text articles from the Advertiser are available online from November 30, 2002-present in the Library's Honolulu Newspapers database.  Any articles written prior to these dates can only be access through the library's microfilm collection.

To find articles in the microfilm there are two indices. The Hawaii Newspaper Index, an online index, has the index for articles from 1989 to the present.  The Index to the Honolulu Advertiser and Honolulu Star-Bulletin books are available in the library's Hawaii Pacific Reference Collection and index articles from 1929-1994.

The current newspaper, Honolulu Star-Advertiser, is only available online beginning from 2010 in the Honolulu Newspapers database.
