Full-text articles from Peninsula Daily News, Forks Forum and Sequim Gazette can be retrieved from microfilm at the Port Angeles Main Library. Digital copies of many historical Clallam County newspapers printed from 1886 onward are available for viewing on the NOLS website here.

The North Olympic Library system sponsors a local newspaper index to articles and obituaries found in the Peninsula Daily News. The index provides citations for articles and obituaries relevant to Clallam County, but does not include or index the full text of the articles. It covers local events from 1993 through 2011, and obituary listings from 1916 to the present. To see an entire article, visit the Port Angeles Main Library to view the microfilm and make prints, or contact ehelp@nols.org to request an electronic copy of the article.
