FREE Access to Chicago Tribune Archive (Beta) [end date unknown]


Love a good news archive?  What if it also happens to be free?

For an unknown amount of time while the Chicago Tribune works on a “Beta” version of its archive, you can access it for FREE.

As shared on the archive FAQ page ...

What do you mean by “beta”?

The archives are a work in progress, but we wanted to make them public so you could start exploring. The piece you’re most likely to notice as not being quite finished is search, which is still in the process of compiling results. This is an ongoing process, however, so don’t be discouraged—if you don’t get many results for your search term one day, try again a day or two later and you might be surprised by what you find!

Occasionally you may notice incorrect highlighting on articles; this is an artifact of the digitization process and not something we can fix at present.

See anything else that looks wrong? Email us at archives@tribune.com—we appreciate your feedback.

Let us know if you make any neat finds!

Eventually, the archive will require a subscription to access.
