How do I find newspapers and newspaper articles?
Finding Newspapers and Newspaper Articles
Newspaper Articles via Databases
Note: Many of our online products do not contain content (articles, pictures) from free lance contributors. You may have to use our microfilm versions to get this content.
1. Single title databases. [New York Times, Los Angeles Times] Click here to go to the Databases: Newspapers listing. Once there, click on the title of the newspaper you wish to search.
The New York Times Historical or the Los Angeles Times Historical products have images of the actual newspaper in .PDF format.
2. Other Online products. With the other products (Lexis Nexis and Proquest Newspapers) you will be able to read the full article on the screen, but they usually do not include pictures or graphics. Use the table to see which of the other products to use. You can do an E-Journal search to find the years of coverage.

If you know the title of the newspaper and the specifics of a particular article (such as date), see the help page Find an Article from a Citation to see if the Library has that newspaper in current issues (in paper) or back issues (microfilm). The Catalog has an alphabetical listing of its newspaper holdings, but most of them are no longer current subscriptions.
