We have set-up a one-month trial for NewspaperArchive which provides access to thousands of newspapers from the United States and overseas. I have attached to this email a brochure from them as well as a review which appeared last year in The Charleston Advisor which provides more detailed information about the product. In a quote from the TCA review – “ currently offers subscription-based, full-text online access to 11,548 American and 3,878 international newspaper titles. While the genealogical newspaper database does provide a selection of major titles, the strength of the collection resides in its vast selection of small town and short-run newspaper titles.”  Libraries will typically license a regional subset of the database.

To try out this resource the vendor has given us fake library card numbers where users can utilize the website with the following URL:    Please note, you must access this link from this Webpage for the trial to properly work.

Users can access the database by clicking on the link, entering a unique user ID (CO0001 - CO9999), and registering the ID on the sign in page. Since each of these unique user IDs get tied to an email address, I have divvied them each library has a range to use.

The database is quite interesting to use and is particularly strong for genealogy. I looked up my parents and found articles on them from small town newspapers from their childhood and college years.
