But My Editor Says I Need to Find a Print Copy!

There are a number of newspaper sources detailed in this Guide in which the articles are available in PDF format.  This PDF format is a scanned copy of the original document; the pagination is exactly the same.  Please note that if you locate a PDF version of a document, there is no need to track down a print version of the same document.
