Microfilm of StarNews newspapers is available at the main branch of the New Hanover County Public Library, 201 Chestnut St., Wilmington [Map this].

Articles from recent years can be found in the StarNews online archive. There you can search for articles by year or by specific dates.

Older newspaper articles are available online through the Google Newspaper Archive. Simply enter a search term in the search window.

The Randall Library at the University of North Carolina Wilmington has the StarNews on microfilm and several other newspaper resources available online.
