Newspaper databases available through the library.  

When using newspaper databases:

  • Look carefully at their descriptions to help you identify coverage date ranges.  
  • When searching in the databases it helps to specify date ranges, especially if you are searching a historical newspaper. 
  •  When searching historical newspapers be aware of the language you are using. The algorithms search for words in the newspaper so using modern terminology for something from the 1800s may not work.
