The following lists indicate which newspapers and which annual bound volumes of each individual newspaper are present in our collection. In addition, we also have overviews detailing which newspapers are available on microfilm, when the newspapers have been on strike, and which newspaper placards we have been able to collect. You can download each individual list as a pdf (in Danish).


Indexes record the contents of newspapers, meaning references to the specific articles in the newspapers. This is especially helpful if you are searching for old content and the newspaper is not available in Indexes usually come in the form of file cards, microfilm and/or printed books, and are often supplemented with a separate overview, making it possible to consult the index.
