Portland & Oregon: News Media
Due to cost, PSU Library will no longer be able to provide complete online access to the Oregonian articles published from 1987 - present.
The oregonlive.com web site provides free access to many Oregonian articles from the last few years, and supports fee-based article delivery of all Oregonian articles ($1.95 per article). The Multnomah County Public Library also provides full text access to the Oregonian. You can get a Multnomah County Library card.
