Hear ye, Hear ye, Read All About It… In the San Diego Union Tribune!
San Diego Union Tribune History
The San Diego Union Tribune newspaper as we know it today was formed in 1992 by a merger between two papers, the San Diego Union and the San Diego Evening Tribune. However, the paper has a long and illustrious past that dates back over 100 years, to when the San Diego Union was founded in 1861 and the San Diego Evening Tribune began publishing in 1895. The San Diego Union Tribune features coverage of daily news, sports, shopping, entertainment and is the second largest newspaper in southern California, preceded only by the Los Angeles Times. The SDSU Library newspaper collections in both print and electronic formats are very popular with our Library patrons. Current print issues can be found on the third floor study area near the vending machines (recently moved from the 1st floor), or accessed online via Newsbank.
