New Online Archive of the Sausalito Marin Scope

Post Date:06/07/2019 3:00 PM

The Sausalito Library is pleased to announce a new online archive of the Sausalito Marin Scope, Sausalito's weekly newspaper since 1971. The new archive is a great resource for researchers of local history and politics, and complements the library's online archive of the Sausalito News, which was published weekly from 1885 until it went out of business in 1966.

Issues of the Sausalito Marin Scope from 1971 to 2010 may be searched and browsed over the open web, with digital images of the paper available for printing or downloading. The years 2011 to 2017 – with 2018 coming soon – can be searched over the open web, but the viewing and printing of articles and page images is restricted to users inside the Sausalito Library.

The archive of the Sausalito Marin Scope was made possible by a grant from the Sausalito Library Foundation and the generous permission of the owner of Marinscope Community Newspapers, Sherman Frederick. The Sausalito Library Foundation also funded the creation of the Sausalito News archive.

The archives of the Sausalito Marin Scope and the Sausalito News are both available via the California Digital Newspaper Collection, an online database of California newspapers maintained at the University of California, Riverside. Users can search and browse the Sausalito Marin Scope and the Sausalito News separately or search both newspapers simultaneously.

Any questions about the Sausalito Library's online newspaper archives may be directed to City Librarian Abbot Chambers at or (415) 289-4123.
