GNARP’s Collection Development Working Group has expanded its list of German-Language Newspapers held in North America. The list includes German-language newspapers regardless of geographic location and emphasizes historical newspaper titles of general interest over specialized, narrow, trade, or niche newspapers.

Newspaper titles—whether local, regional, or national in scope—are listed alphabetically by city of publication. City names are given as recognizable in common English usage (e.g., Vienna); vernacular equivalents are given where the spelling differs (e.g., Wien). Each holding institution is listed alphabetically by name, along with years of holdings and an indication whether interlibrary loan is available. Icons represent whether the newspaper is held in paper, microform, and digital format.

GNARP (German-North American Resources Partnership) is a CRL Global Resources Network program.
