Bosnian Newspapers in the Library of Congress

Online Newspapers from Bosnia

Detroit Publishing Company. [Sarajcvo (i.e., Sarajevo), looking toward Alifakovak, Bosnia, Austro-Hungary] [between ca. 1890 and ca. 1900]. Library of Congress Prints & Photographs Division.

The Library of Congress has the latest three months of only one online newspaper and one online news magazine from Bosnia and Herzegovina, but provides almost no historical depth in the Bosnian digital news realm.

News sources such as Internet portals, news magazines, and newswires are available through the four subscription databases described below, but with the exception of titles in PressReader, most of the sources are in English.

The most useful way to obtain the latest news and information in the vernacular from and about B&H is to visit the websites of current Bosnian newspapers. For information in English try using websites of major newspapers outside of the country such as the New York Times, the Times of London, or the Washington Post. The Library of Congress has these three, and many other English-language newspapers, in its subscription database collection.

Subscription Databases

Subscription resources marked with a padlock are available to researchers on-site at the Library of Congress. If you are unable to visit the Library, you may be able to access these resources through your local public or academic library.

Digitized Newspapers

Unfortunately, only some newspapers from B&H are freely available on the Internet. MediaCentar External in Sarajevo has been digitizing newspapers and other periodicals from Bosnia from all periods of Bosnian history. Their site is described below.
