Looking for a Paper Newspaper?

Most of our newspapers are available via online subscriptions.  However, Spiva Library still subscribes to a small number of print newspapers.  A few are even available in both formats - print & online.  You will find the following print newspapers on a shelf in the middle of the 3rd floor. We keep the current issue plus two weeks, which can be found under the shelf. 

Carl Junction Jasper County Citizen
The Chart**
El Dorado Springs Star
The Joplin Globe*
Lawrence County Reporter

*also available online via library subscriptions; you must be a current MSSU student, faculty or staff member to access the online papers from off-campus

**MSSU student newspaper - freely available online to anyone with internet access

Subscription Databases with Full Text Current Newspapers

These databases are available only to current MSSU students, faculty and staff from off-campus.  Community members and others not affiliated with the university must be in the library to access the materials available via these databases.
