We need your help to find missing newspapers!

If you find any of the missing newspapers, we want to hear from you - please contact 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.
