For identifying newspaper titles from Slovenia, online catalogs from libraries in Slovenia and in other European countries are extremely helpful. The catalogs most useful in the preparation of this guide are described below.
The combined online catalog of the major libraries in Slovenia is an excellent source for identifying newspaper titles from the country. The libraries in Slovenia have made an estimable effort to digitize or provide other electronic access to newspapers and the links to this material are very clearly presented in the bibliographic records. For some contemporary newspaper titles the catalog also provides citations for articles. There is no need to use diacritics when searching.
This union catalog of German serials contains bibliographic records for print and digitized versions of newspapers, including many published on the territory of Slovenia. For historical titles, it is helpful to recognize the German names of cities, such as Marburg for Maribor.
Available in this catalog are records for Slovenian newspapers microfilmed by the MFA in Dortmund, Germany. These titles are in German, not Slovenian, but they stem from the German population who once lived on the territory of present-day Slovenia. It is helpful to recognize the German names for cities, such as Laibach for Ljubljana.
