CONTEMPORARY - These tend to be full-text transcriptions of individual newspaper articles rather than full page scans. Images, advertisements, etc. from the actual newspaper are usually not included. In most cases articles are available up to the current day.


Gale OneFile News - Full text access to over 2,000 regional, national, and major international newspapers as well as transcripts of radio and television broadcasts. Provided through NovelNY. A valid Hicksville card is required.

ProQuest U.S. Newsstream - Local, regional, and national U.S. publications with full text access as well as archives going back to 1980 of many major publications. Includes the L.A. Times, New York Times, Newsday (1985 - Present), and The Wall Street Journal.

Note - there is some crossover between Gale OneFile News and ProQuest U.S. Newsstream. Patrons or librarians may need to try both databases if looking for something a bit more obscure. In general, ProQuest has more local and regional domestic newspapers including Newsday and has exclusive access to The Wall Street Journal, Chicago Tribune, and L.A. Times.

Access Restrictions - ProQuest databases have links for in-house library use that have been fixed to stop asking for a library card barcode when used on site. For off-site/remote use, Gale and ProQuest require the patron’s library card barcode. The Hicksville archives page and its contents do not require a library card, nor does the Brooklyn Eagle archive from the Brooklyn Public Library’s website.
