Online Newspaper Archives

Postby Thomas Reeder » Thu Dec 28, 2017 8:49 am

For those of you with experience with any of the online newspaper archives, what are the pluses and minuses of each? I'm thinking of and, but perhaps there's another source (aside from the Library of Congress' Chronicling America) that I'm not aware of. I had a subscription to for several years 8-10 years or so ago, and had some "issues" with it, but I have no idea whether or not their site is as good as it gets. Any feedback? I'd like to re-subscribe, but hope to get the biggest bang for my hard-earned buck.

Thomas, if you have access to a university library card, they probably have the full run of ProQuest Historical Newspapers. Full-text of the: Atlanta Constitution, Baltimore Sun, Boston Globe, Chicago Defender, Chicago Tribune, Christian Science Monitor, Los Angeles Times, New York Amsterdam News, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post.
