Australia's missing newspapers

Wanted: Australia's Missing Newspapers

We need your help.

Is there a pile of old newspapers under your bed, in your shed  or under the floorboards?

Do you want to help preserve our social history for future generations?

Well, we want to hear from you. Please contact us by telephone or email us.

We want to find, collect, preserve and provide access to the  nation’s missing newspapers under the Australian Newspaper Plan, managed by the national, state and territory libraries. So regardless of where you live or the particular “Wanted” newspaper you find, we want to hear from you.

Newspapers didn’t just report the news. They told stories of their times, through ads, photographs, and even their design—stories we want to save for all Australians.
