Magazines & Newspapers

El Segundo Herald Newspaper Database  Provided by a generous gift from the Friends of the El Segundo Public Library
A digital newspaper collection from the library’s El Segundo Herald microfilm holdings.  The historic papers in this collection cover the period of late-1916 to 2013, with some gaps as several early years are missing from the microfilm.  Please note that when downloading the newspaper images they are extremely large files and take considerable time to appear on your screen.  We will be upgrading the software soon to speed up the process.  Thank you for your patience.

MasterFILE Complete   This database provides full text for more than 2,000 magazine and newspaper articles.
