The original Regional Collection of the Library collected and preserved newspapers over the years since Sonoma State College
was founded. These newspapers eventually became an archival collection of historical newspapers covering many areas of Sonoma
County, including the Petaluma Argus Courier, the Sonoma Democrat, the Santa Rosa Daily Democrat, the Santa Rosa Press Democrat,
and various Russian River newspapers from Cloverdale and Healdsburg to Guerneville and Forestville.
