Historical Newspapers Online

Do you ever have to find an older or historical newspaper article, either for a research paper or source gathering assignment?  Some students are aware of New York Times Historical, a ProQuest historical newspaper accessible from the Axinn Library through the a Law Library web site link and the Hofstra portal. New York Times Historical contains full text page-image and PDF articles from the years 1851-2007.  But other Proquest historical newspapers are also available through the Hofstra portal.  Just click on "New York Times Historical" in the Axinn database list, under "Newspapers."  At the ProQuest page, click on the "History" icon. Here you will find a selection of historical newspapers covering more than two centuries of primary source material:  the Boston Globe (1872-1979); British newspapers The Guardian (1821-2003) and The Observer (1791-2003), and state and local events chronicled in Newsday (1940-1984).
