The library has been serving the employees of the News & Record since the paper's earliest days. Back then, the library was called the "morgue" as in "dead news." Today, the library plays a vital role in the research carried out by our reporters. The library is not open to the public or offer research for the public but hopefully, the information below will help you use our archive to locate past articles.
A Short History of the Newspaper
The Daily Record published its first issue on November 17, 1890 and the Greensboro Daily News was founded as a morning paper July 18, 1909. The Greensboro News Co. acquired the Daily Record in 1930 and became the evening paper. An all-day paper titled, Greensboro News & Record was introduced in 1982 and in February, 1986 the afternoon paper was eliminated making the News & Record strictly a morning paper.
All of these past issues of the newspaper or their individual news articles are accessible. However, depending on the date, you will use different strategies for locating a particular issue or news article.
- • Current papers, up until 30 days after publication are available for purchase from our front counter, or call 336-373-7260 to have papers mailed.
- • Microfilm is a photocopy of the actual paper and is filmed chronologically. Historical papers from the nineteenth century to the present day are on microfilm. The News & Record corporate library does not offer microfilm research for the public and you will need to go to the Greensboro Public Library to see these papers. To locate a particular article on microfilm, you will need a specific date or a very narrow date range. Articles are not indexed by subject.
Clip Files cover a date range from the late 1960s to 1989. News librarians clipped and filed articles by subject or by a person's name. The library cannot research a subject or person but if a clip file exists, the librarian can give you dates that stories were published. You would then have to take the dates to the public library and find the articles on microfilm. Call to see if a file exist and to get dates for past stories: 336.373.7169.
Digital. From 1990, all staff articles are available online at our web site. Stories from the past 90 days are free, but you will have to pay to download older stories. This is a text only archive. No photographs or graphics accompany the article. Click here for information about our photographs.
