These newspapers and periodicals, many of which have been only partially accessible inside Iran, cover the defining moments from the following three eras:

  • The premiership of Mohammad Mossadegh and the August 1953 coup d'état against his government (1950-53)
  • The 1979 Revolution; and
  • The late 1990s/early 2000s ‘reform era’ of former President Mohammad Khatami.

Containing more than 12,000 pages, the collection is freely accessible without restriction.
