Hofstra Library has newspapers in print, microform and digital format. You can access newspaper articles in digital format dating as far back as 1851 by searching these databases:
- Brooklyn Eagle
- Custom Newspapers
- InfoTrac Custom Newspapers
- Lexis Nexis Academic
- National Newspapers
- New York State Newspapers (includes Newsday, 1940-1980)
- New York Times Current
- New York Times Historical
- Newspaper Source
- Times (London) Digital Archive
There are several ways of accessing these databases.
If you are on campus, the links above will bring you directly to the database. If you are off-campus, and logged into the Hofstra portal, they should work (probably!)
You can also access them via the Library homepage at www.Hofstra.edu/Library > Databases by Subject (click in the blue bar to open) > Select Subject > Newspapers. You will be prompted for your username and password. After entering your username/password, you will arrive at a screen where you can access databases either by subject area or alphabetically by name of database.
You can also access these databases on the School of Communication Databases Libguide and clicking on the Newspapers and Primary Sources tab.
In addition, the attached file will direct you to newspapers the Library has in print and microform. These print and microform newspapers range in date from 1785 to the present.
