Newspapers and Other Publications

The Provincial Archives houses the largest available collection of Saskatchewan weekly newspapers, and many of the major Saskatchewan daily newspapers.  Primarily, these newspapers are available on microfilm, and date back to the establishment of the Saskatchewan Herald (Battleford), first published in 1878.

The Provincial Archives has an excellent collection of pamphlets and other rare printed materials, many of which were not widely circulated.  The pamphlet collection documents a wide array of themes, including arts and culture; politics; the activities of societies, organizations, and populist movements; and recreational activities.

Other publications in the Archives’ Collection  include local history books, family history books, city and town directories, and government publications including statutes and annual reports.

To access these records, begin your search in Threshold.  However, as not all of our Collection is described in Threshold as of yet, you are also advised to contact Reference Services.
