Historic Newspaper Resources

Looking for a resource for historic newspaper articles?  There are a few options.  The Marydean Martin Library at NSC has several databases for historic newspapers:  Historic NY Times database; Historic L.A. Times database; American Periodical Series; and the Newspaper Source database.  Be sure to use the advanced search features in these databases to narrow your search to a specific time period.

You can also try "Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers," an archive created and maintained by the NEH:

You can also try Google News' Advanced Search ( - see below).  Enter the dates you need, locations, and the name of the newspaper (if you know it).  Depending on the newspaper, some articles are free, while others are not.
