Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Digital Archive

As of January 1, 2019, microfilm is no longer being produced for this newspaper.  As a replacement, Milwaukee Public Library is now purchasing digital image files from NewsBank.  The archive is full-color and includes death notices and supplemental sections.  There is a 90-day delay from publication date to availability, but the library also subscribes to PressReader, which offers same day availability and a rolling 90-day backfile, so MPL provides online full-image coverage between both resources moving forward.
